After making his return for Borussia Dortmund against Bochum on Saturday afternoon, Edin Terzić stated in his press conference on Monday afternoon that Marco Reus had to stop training on Sunday.
“He was in pain again,” said Terzić. “To be on the safe side, we stopped training. We checked him again today but it didn’t look too bad. We’ll see if his can participate tomorrow.”
Reus tore a ligament in his ankle in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win against Schalke in mid-September and made a return against Union Berlin four weeks later. Introduced at half-time, this appeared to aggravate Reus’ injury and he was against bound to the sidelines. The 33-year-old played 33 minutes against Bochum.
This latest setback is also a concern for Hansi Flick, who announces his 26-man Germany squad on November 10 for the World Cup later this month. One Borussia Dortmund forward that could make the squad on Thursday is Youssoufa Moukoko (17), who with a brace against Bochum, has made a claim to be included.
