Dortmund set to welcome back Marco Reus after eight months injury
Borussia Dortmund is set to welcome back Germany International from a long injury lay-off as Manager, Peter Stoger affirms that he might be available to feature in the club’s next game.
The talented and brilliant midfielder, who has been out since May with an awful Knee ligament injury now has about four months to help his club end the season well after an unconvincing display in the past few months and also to convince Germany Coach, Joachim Low of his talents ahead of the summer World Cup.
It is a fact that Dortmund has terribly missed the 28-year old whose moments of genius has won several matches for the German side. In fact, he got injured after a sensational display in the German Cup final victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in May.
The club is positioned 4th on the Bundesliga table, having the same number of points as Schalke 04 and just six points above 10th placed Hannover 96. They are 19 points off the league summit and it is certain they can only play catch up for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
“He can significantly change the course of a game thanks to his quality,” stated Dortmund Boss Peter Stoger as he affirmed that he could make his return in their league game against Hamburg SV this weekend.
“Marco has trained normally throughout the week, we know he would like to play and he knows we would like to have him with us,’ he said, adding that the final decision would lie with Reus himself.”
“He knows his body better than anyone and it’s up to him to give the signal.”
The fast-feet winger has suffered 14 injuries lasting more than 10 days since joining Dortmund in 2012 in an injury-plagued but impressive career
He couldn’t make the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after getting injured in a friendly game with Armenia in preparation for the tournament while a groin problem denied him a place in Euro 2016.
This last knee problem made him unavailable for the Confederations Cup last year and he will only be hopeful that he remains fit for the remainder of the season to merit a place in this summer football fiesta in Russia.
