Good morning, everyone.
During his tenure with Borussia Dortmund, the captain Marco Reus has seen many great players come and go, from Robert Lewandowski to Jadon Sancho. Despite Dortmund’s reputation as a fairly transitory club, one constant over the past decade has been Marco Reus’s enduring presence at the club. His commitment to BVB has earned him his fair share of criticism over the years, from pundits who suggest that it demonstrates a lack of “winning mentality”, whatever that means. In a recent interview he did with ESPN’s Zito Madu, Reus explained that he’s content with his choice to stay in Dortmund, and that it’s ultimately what he’s always wanted:
Of course one thinks about it if you get offers from various teams, top clubs, but that is part of it and you have to make a decision at some point. But my heart has always told me that I feel the most comfortable here. To play in front of 80,000 fans is not something one wants to miss out on, and therefore the decision was never really hard. But of course one has thought about it.
In the full interview, which I do recommend you read here, he also addresses other topics such as his history with injuries and his role as a veteran in an otherwise very young squad.
Christian Falk: Arsenal Interested in Denis Zakaria
Christian Falk is normally very reliable on Bayern Munich-related rumors, less so on other Bundesliga rumors, but this one is interesting. According to Falk, Arsenal are interested in Denis Zakaria:
Zakaria is a player I’ve always thought would do well in Dortmund, and he could theoretically be available on a free transfer this summer, but it would be hard for Dortmund to keep up with Arsenal’s wage offerings, and the allure of the Premier League seems to be too great for some players to ignore.
