Marco Reus Returns And Will Captain Borussia Dortmund After 8 Months Out Injured
Marco Reus is one of the unluckiest footballers out there. The 28-year-old been plagued with injuries in recent times, even missing out on the 2016 European Championships.
Basically, Reus has endured a miserable four year spell and for that, we are sorry.
That being said, Reus is finally back in action this weekend after 259 days out with a cruciate ligament injury and on his return, Borussia Dortmund have handed him the captain's armband against Hamburg.
An incredible gesture by an equally fantastic club.

Reus had to be taken off for Christian Pulisic in the 45th minute of last year's DFB Pokal final against Eintracht Frankfurt, where Dortmund emerged victorious with a 2-1 win - courtesy of a chipped penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

In a cruel set of circumstances, It was in fact Reus' first major trophy of his career and the 27-year old's injury didn't appear to be too severe given that he actively took part in the trophy celebrations.

But as we all know, the German winger was ruled out for eight months, but now he will return at the home of Borussia in an emotional moment for all involved.
In an emotional interview last year, Reus admitted that he would give all his money away' to be free of injuries.
With Reus recalling the half-time interval during the cup triumph, admitting he broke down in tears.
