Despite an afternoon marked by a victory against Schalke (1-0) in the famous Ruhr derby, all was not rosy – or yellow – for the new Bundesliga leader. Released through injury shortly after half an hour of play, Marco Reus could miss many weeks of competition. In any case, this is what the words of his coach, present at the press conference after the meeting, suggest.
“There’s no one I talk to more often than our team doctor right now. Today, it’s our captain’s turn. We are extremely bitter, it’s so unfortunate. Marco injured his ankle. I was only able to speak to him briefly at halftime. Because he was in a lot of pain. How badly the ligaments are injured, we cannot yet answer. It’s a shame because Marco was in excellent shape, he was in great shape and playing very well. He has had so many setbacks in his career; we had hoped that he would finally get over it, especially in this World Cup year. We hope it’s not as bad as it looks.” he wondered. The Yellow and Black just have to cross their fingers for their captain.
