If Bild‘s report gets verified by Borussia Dortmund, it will be a major blow to the DFB Pokal winners. Marco Reus got injured in the first half of the final against Eintracht Frankfurt, and according to the German newspaper, he will spend up to six months out, having suffered a cruciate ligament damage.
Maybe it’s a bit of anterior cruciate ligament. You’ll have to ask the doc. It doesn’t matter today
the 27-year-old told reporters while celebrating winning the Cup. But the night after the final has already passed, and today his injury does matter.
Reus received a knock when running into the box
was all Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund’s coach, could say in the Press conference after the game, not sure himself how serious the injury was.
Reus had already spent a good part of the season watching from the stands, because of another injury. Last season it wasn’t much different. Generally, unfortunately, serious and minor injuries have deprived him of the chance to complete a season at Dortmund having delivered what he is really capable of, and it looks like the first half of the next season will be one of the same.
