Lothar Matthäus advises Borussia Dortmund to separate from captain Marco Reus. “Reus isn’t getting any better either, the injuries will continue and of course he’s getting older. If you don’t trust Marco Reus one hundred percent anymore, then you should find a reasonable solution that’s good for both sides,” said the German record international Sky90 and added: “Reus is no longer an untouchable regular player as captain.”
Reus’ contract expires at the end of the season. Several media had recently reported that the 33-year-old would be extended by a year. For this, the former Gladbacher (around twelve million annual salary) had to accept heavy financial losses. In the future he should only earn seven million euros as a fixed salary. However, his advisor denied an agreement with BVB.
“I see people at Dortmund who can play Reus’ position. A Julian Brandt showed up when Reus was injured. They also have Karim Adeyemi. They have great players up front who can certainly replace Reus.” said Matthew.
Reus switched to BVB in 2012 and is still waiting for a championship title with the black and yellow. In 262 league games for Dortmund he scored 114 goals.
