Meanwhile, is Marco Reus cursed or something? The Borussia Dortmund forward injured his knee during his club’s 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. On Sunday, Bild initially reported that Reus tore his ACL, which could cost the German international up to six months of action, though they later backtracked, saying it was only a partial tear and he’ll miss two months instead.
It’s another setback for Reus, who missed the first three months of the 2016/17 season with a groin injury; also suffering ankle and leg issues in the last three years. Let’s hope he doesn’t become the German equivalent of another injury-plagued player with a seemingly high ceiling.

At least Reus was a part of success this time, winning his first major trophy in a Dortmund shirt. He knows all too well about bad timing with injuries.
Marco Reus really got injured a week before the World Cup and Germany ended up winning. That has to hurt for a lifetime.
