BREAKING: Marco Reus To Leave Borussia Dortmund After 12 Years

Marco Reus To Leave Borussia Dortmund after June 2024

Borussia Dortmund ace Marco Reus has decided to leave the club after 12 years. His contract is set to expire in June this year and won’t extend it, thereby departing Der BVB as a free agent.

The news comes as a huge blow for the Dortmund faithful but isn’t surprising, as uncertainty over his future at the Signal Iduna Park had been hanging for sometime now.

Joining from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012, Reus has been an integral part of Dortmund’s set-up over the years, playing a key role in guiding them to four trophies, two each in DFB Pokal and DFL Supercup.

The 34-year-old admitted that it will be difficult for him to bid the club adieu at the end of the season. He said:

“I have spent more than half of my life at this club and enjoyed every day. I will find it difficult to say goodbye at the end of the season.”

Reus has made 424 appearances for Dortmund in all competitions, scoring 168 goals and making a further 128 assists.

Champions League bow would be the perfect farewell for Reus

Marco Reus may have never won the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund, but he has a chance of winning the Champions League. Der BVB are in the semi-finals of the competition, and beat PSG 1-0 in the first leg earlier this week. A draw in Paris would be enough for them to reach the finals, where familiar foes, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid, will be competing against them. Lifting the big ol’ ears would mark the perfect farewell for the Dortmund legend, as he closes a beautiful chapter after 12 long years.
