Marco Reus ruled out indefinitely by Borussia Dortmund with groin injury as long-term problems continue ahead of season

July 31, 2020

BORUSSIA DORTMUND have confirmed Marco Reus has been ruled out indefinitely with a groin injury.

The Bundesliga giants' captain, 31, missed a huge chunk of 2019-20 with his troublesome knock, starting just 18 league games.

And now Dortmund have revealed he will miss pre-season – and possibly longer – while they get to the bottom of the problem.

In a statement, the club confirmed Reus would be out "indefinitely".

It read: "Borussia Dortmund will still have to be without Marco Reus.

"The captain has problems with tendon inflammation at the same injured groin muscle.

"He will be out for an indefinite period.

"Reus has worked intensively in recent months and has taken steps forward.

"But he still has problems with some movements."

German football is set to kick off the 2020-21 season on September 18, with pre-season already underway.

The club have already signed ex-Birmingham wonderkid Jude Bellingham this summer, but are braced to lose Jadon Sancho.

Dortmund will be hoping to finally win the Bundesliga for the first time since 2012 after fading late in the 2019-20 season and allowing Bayern Munich to win an eight-straight title.

In 2011-12, the club won the league crown under Jurgen Klopp – before Reus joined the club.
