Video: Marco Reus' injury had Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp fearing the worst
Borussia Dortmund fans surely skipped a heartbeat after club talisman Marco Reus suffered yet another injury during German Cup victory over Dynamo Dresden. Reus was substituted midway through the first half and had to be helped off the pitch.
The German winger has led Dortmund’s mini-revival this season after coming back from an ankle injury which ruled him out for the majority of the first half of the season. Reus has been in brilliant form after his return, scoring in the previous five matches and has been detrimental to Dortmund clawing its way out of the Bundesliga’s relegation zone.
Dortmund beat Dresden 2-0 on the night to qualify for the quarterfinals of the German Cup, but the victory was marred by fears over Reus’ injury.
Even though the exact details of the injury are yet to be revealed, initial reports suggest that the injury may not be as serious as first thought. But manager Jurgen Klopp admitted that he feared the worst for his star player.
In an interview to Sky, Klopp said, “If it is really just a bruise with Marco, this has been a good night.
“I looked so angry because everybody looked at me like he had a broken leg. I am a simple person and if everybody looks at me like his leg is broken, I believe that. I hope next time they will inform me sooner when it is just a bruise.”
