New Marco Reus injury not serious


Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus’ latest injury scare is not serious as initially predicted.

The 25-year-old limped off after just 21 minutes in Dortmund’s 2-0 win over third tier Dynamo Dresden in the DFB-Pokal.

Everyone feared for the worst when Reus was laying on the ground after a tackle by Dennis Erdmann, especially after Reus’ recent injury troubles, having only returned to action in late January. However, it turns out it was just a dead leg.

Manager Jurgen Klopp feared it was a broken leg at first and was delighted and angry at the same time when he found it wasn’t that serious.

“If it is really just a bruise with Marco, this has been a good night,” Klopp said. “I looked so angry because everybody looked at me like he had a broken leg. I am a simple person and if everybody looks at me like his leg is broken, I believe that. I hope next time they will inform me sooner when it is just a bruise.”

The news comes as a big boost especially as Dortmund seemed to have turned their season around coinciding with Reus’ return, having won five domestic games in a row after their win against Dresden – the first time they’ve achieved that since February 2014.

And if Dortmund have any hopes of overturning their Champions League 2-1 defeat to Juventus at the Westfalenstadion in the return leg, Reus’ presence will be crucial.
