Bundesliga news: German star to end his career at Dortmund
What is the story?
According to German outlet Sport Bild, Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has claimed that their star player Marco Reus will remain at the club until the end of his career.
In case you didn't know
This season, Reus, who can operate in either wing, has played 22 matches in the Bundesliga, netting 15 times and providing six assists.

"He is respected by all."
Zorc went on to add how important Reus is for the club by saying,
Marco is also an identification figure and deeply rooted in Dortmund. I can not imagine that he will play for another club.
What is next?
Dortmund will face Bayern Munich in their next Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. A victory could make the way easier for Dortmund in the road to win the championship as the points difference between the two title contenders will increase to 5 then.
