Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that attacker Marco Reus will be out of action till April with a thigh injury.
The 27-year-old was removed from the match against Bayer Leverkusen late in the first half and Dortmund has confirmed a muscle rupture in his left thigh and he’ll be out for at least a month.
Reus missed much of the start of the season, with a groin injury and has only played 11 games for Dortmund this season.
“This is sad news, he’s been playing at a high level for weeks. That is a huge loss for us that definitely clouds this victory,” the coach said.
Nevertheless, Dortmund coped well without Reus on Saturday, as they ran out 6-2 winners in a thrilling encounter, with four of their goals arriving in the second half.
