A report from Kicker has stated that Marco Reus can now participate in full team training and can soon be available again for selection. Injured since last May, Reus has missed every game so far this season but will be looking to make a return in the near future.

Dr. Michael Strobel has said that his posterior cruciate ligament has fully healed. Lately, Marco has been participating in light training, avoiding activities that included players dueling over possession of the ball so as not to aggravate the injury. Now, we can expect him to be a part of entire training sessions with the squad.

Still, it will probably be a little while before we can expect to see him in a game. Despite the ever-increasing rumors of Aubameyang leaving for Arsenal, a blow that would be softened by the immediate return of the German winger, Borussia Dortmund can’t afford for Reus to get injured again this season. The Dortmund management will no doubt be wary of his proneness to injury and wait to see if he is really good to go. Also, he will need some time to get back into top match form.

Nevertheless, the BVB faithful will be excited to see that their golden boy is back and training. It’s been a rough season and at least we can cling to the reality that Marco Reus will take to the field fairly soon.

Let us know on a scale of 1 to Jürgen Klopp after a 90’ winner how happy you are.
