  • Reus talks about the youngsters and being the captain

Talking to German outlet kicker, Reus said that Dembélé and Mor are extremely talented players but they still have a lot to learn. He noted that he exposure in the Bundesliga is a lot higher than in Denmark or France and that both of them need to keep a clear head going forward.

He also talked about the captaincy and a possible change in the winter break. As of right now Marcel Schmelzer is still the captain but some rumors have indicated that this might change in the near future. Reus himself said that it would be a huge honor to be the captain of Borussia Dortmund but that it wouldn't change much in the locker room noting that everyone can speak up and be a captain.

Daily Buzz: What do you guys think, is it a good idea to change captains mid-season? Is Reus the "real" captain or would this change just undermine Marcel Schmelzer?
