Marco Reus (born 31st of May 1989 | 180cm) has operated as a Stallworth in the Borussia Dortmund side in the German Bundesliga for a decade. With his vision and his knack for scoring goals, he has always been a fundamental piece in the Dortmund jigsaw. Reus has been a consistent performer with double figures in the goal column almost every season – while there are plenty of highlights to choose from, his 2011-12 season at Borussia Mönchengladbach is his best yet with 18 league goals.

Marco Reus – The Numbers:


Reus has delivered the goods at the pinnacle of soccer, he has been on the winning side in the German DFB Pokal and Super Cup. He was also in the Germany squad that finished second in the 2018 World Cup.

Club Career

One of Reus’ better seasons was back in 2011-12 for Borussia Mönchengladbach, but it is his long-haul stint for Borussia Dortmund that made him take the extra step on the biggest stage. Reus joined Dortmund ahead of the 2012-13 season in a deal reportedly worth 17.5 million euros1. For multiple seasons he was the clubs’ talisman, fighting it out with Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title and reaching the Champions League final.

International Career

Reus made his debut at the international level on the 7th of October 2011 in a European Qualifying match against Turkey – Germany ran out 3-1 winners2. His first international goal came in a 5-3 loss versus Switzerland on the 26th of May 20123.


There is no doubt about his talent, but there is doubt about his injury record. Unfortunately, Marco Reus has been plagued by injuries during his career. In 2017 he suffered a cruciate ligament rupture4 – an injury that kept him on the sidelines for 220 days and made him miss 27 games5. A common denominator for Reus is; a great talent hampered by injuries.
