Marco Reus: The not so sorely missed

In the absence of Marco Reus, Borussia Dortmund always began to count in fear. This time the captain is no longer sorely missed in the brilliant offensive as before.

Some things do not change. For example, if Marco Reus has a muscle injury, the estimate of the downtime may be taken a little higher than usual. But what has changed a long time ago: if the captain is absent, no panic breaks out at Borussia Dortmund –so outstanding is now the black-and-yellow offensive occupied.

Nevertheless: Marco Reus and his injuries, that remains a mystery.” It’s not a muscle fiber fracture where you can say it takes three weeks,”the national player himself said. That was over two weeks ago. Before the match at Borussia Munich (2:1), coach Lucien Favre was unable to give any information. There was the injury from the fourth. February is already four weeks old.

“We can’t tell exactly when he will be back in the square,” said Favre, Reus has already been “training in the hall” for two days. How and to what extent: open. At the earliest after the end of March, there is supposed to be a return.

Speculation about EM-out for Reus

Prompt of course broaches the rumors at a high level. The “Bild” newspaper already speculates with a possible off for the European Championship in the summer that “kicker” contradicts. At the end of May, Federal trainer Joachim Lion will call his team to the training camp, and at the end of June the final cadre will be nominated.

By then, Reus must have provided proof of full performance.” He needs to be topfit when he comes back so he doesn’t hurt himself again,”Favre said. It would not be the first time.

For the BVB, the good news is that the offensive is playing the necessary goals even without its leader. Alone Jadon Sancho stands at 29 goals or goals in the current Bundesliga season, Erling Haaland came and met as he wishes.

Thorgan Hazard played behind the top in Reus’absence, as did Julian Brandt. In six games (before the game on Tuesday evening at Paris Saint-Germain) since the injury of his captain, the BVB scored 15 goals, all games he won. The boys are doing well,”praised the convalescence.

Reus wants”to be completely healed”

By Reus himself, however, there is little to see on the training ground as well as in the social networks. However, he used his forced break to position himself clearly in society: “No goal, no victory, no title in football means as much to me as an open and peaceful society,” he said “t- “.

That was a blessing. But he will have to wait a little longer for the victories.” I didn’t choose a special game for my return,”he said,”it’s important to me that I get completely healthy and feel no more pain.”Not missing him as sorely as I used to, relieves the pressure.
