Marco Reus is still suffering from the pain caused by the muscle injury he suffered in February. But the hope is that he will be ready to return when the season gets back underway.

Marco Reus hobbled off with a muscle injury in the adductor area towards the end of Borussia Dortmund’s DFB Pokal third round defeat to Werder Bremen in early February. It was thought that the Dortmund captain would return within a month. However, almost two months later and he is still not back in training.

According to Kicker, Reus is still not fully free of pain. But it is hoped that ideally, he will be able to return to action for the team if the season gets back underway in May.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Borussia Dortmund players are currently training in pairs of two. However, Reus is not yet ready to take part in that. Sebastian Kehl confirmed that Reus is continuing to train individually and is trying to return to full fitness.

Reus’ absence in the team has certainly been felt, especially in games such as the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie against Paris St. Germain. The 30 year old has 12 goals and seven assists to his name in 26 appearances so far this season.

Borussia Dortmund still have nine more Bundesliga matches to play. So whenever the season gets back underway, games will come thick and fast. And the Black and Yellows will need their captain to lead the team in what could be a thrilling end to the Bundesliga title race.
