Borussia Dortmund’s captain Marco Reus has ennobled Mario Götze as the best BVB teammate of his career. To a corresponding question in the podcast of the marketing platform OMR Reus chose the Rio world champion, who had switched to Eintracht Frankfurt this summer.
Reus explained: “When I came to Dortmund at the time, Mario Götze was the exceptional talent. He was incredible back then. It was incredible and everyone I spoke to raved about him.”
In 2012, Reus switched from Gladbach to BVB for a fee of 23 million euros and initially played with Götze for a year, before he said goodbye to Bayern. Together, the two offensive players reached the final of the Champions League that season. Götze returned from Munich in 2016 and then played alongside Reus for another four years before moving to PSV.
In his ten years at Borussia, Reus had a number of well-known teammates. The 33-year-old appeared with Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland, Ousmane Dembele, Ilkay Gündogan and Jadon Sancho, among others.
Reus also raved about some of them: “We had an incredible number of good players at Dortmund. Jadon Sancho was and is also an incredibly good player because he simply has great timing with the passes combined with dribbling. Ousmane Dembélé, we have him always called the ‘hipless man’ because he can turn so quickly Erling (Haaland), then Ilkay (Gündogan) I think I forgot a few but I think those were the ones that made the most impact on their business cards have left.”
