Following a recent ankle injury, Marco Reus “feels better” ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday but Edin Terzic doesn’t plan on rushing the 33-year-old back.
“Marco Reus remains a big question mark,” Terzic told reporters. “But he feels better. We’ll decide at short notice [if he will play]. Marco signalled to used that he was feeling good, so he was substituted on in Berlin but he felt something after the game, so we’re cautious.”
Reus suffered an ankle injury in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win against Schalke in the Revierderby last month and has played just 45 minutes of football since, coming on at half-time during BVB’s 2-0 defeat at Union Berlin.
Terzic also confirmed that Raphaël Guerreiro would miss Saturday’s Topspiel in Frankfurt with a muscular injury. The Portugal international will also miss Tuesday’s game against Copenhagen in the Champions League. After serving a suspension, Salih Özcan returns.
With Guerreiro out, BVB could opt to start Thorgan Hazard at left-back again: “He did really well on Tuesday and is an option again on Saturday,” added Terzic.
