“We want to be German champions, we need every single Borussia player to do that,” said Reus, “but beyond that, I still have a great desire to do my best for the club, where I’ve spent more than half my life. ” He “always said that I would prefer not to play for any other club in my career than for BVB.”

For Sebastian Kehl, the importance of the veteran is still great. “As a player and identification figure, Marco is extremely important for this club,” said the sporting director. The contract talks were “always positive, trusting and goal-oriented”.

Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke ennobled Reus as a “deserving player in our club”. In the future he should “use all his experience to promote the development of the younger generation within our squad”.
