Borussia Dortmund’s skipper, Marco Reus, is recovering from his tendonitis with steady progress. According to BILD, he will be fit for the DFB-Pokal clash against MSV Duisburg. The clubs clash on the 14th of September in the first professional game for BVB in their 2020/21 campaign.
Reus was recently eased back into team training after making significant progress in his rehabilitation programme. The German International sustained a muscular injury in February and hasn’t played a single minute of football since. Although he initially returned to team training in June, his recovery was further setback by an inflamed tendon.
Michael Zorc, Borussia Dortmund’s Sporting Director, recently opened up on Reus’s recovery. He said, “On Saturday morning I watched exactly how Marco trained. That looked really robust. Marco exudes a very positive charisma.” In more encouraging news for Dortmund fans, Reus himself spoke to BVBTV about his comeback. He said, “I’ve been in Dortmund since last Tuesday and I’m back to normal team training.”
Dortmund’s players and manager have repetitively spoken of their desire to win the Bundesliga in 2021, and Reus will be a crucial part if that was to happen. If Dortmund wants to make a serious bid for the title in the upcoming season, they know that Reus’s skill, as well as experience, will be crucial. In spite of just playing 19 times in last season’s Bundesliga, the German scored 11 times and provided 6 assists.
