Florence, Italy: Mario Gomez has made it clear why he chose to leave European champion Bayern Munich for Fiorentina.

The Germany striker believes that by transferring to a smaller club he'll get more playing time and have a better chance of staying in form for next year's World Cup.

Gomez said at his presentation Monday that "my transfer may seem strange to some people. I had everything in Munich. But here I have the chance to play in view of the World Cup."
