BREAKING: There's More Injury Heartbreak For Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus
Marco Reus' rotten luck with injuries does not appear to be going away unfortunately.
The German has been plagued by a mixture of niggly injuries and long-term lay-offs in recent times, and it looks as though he is facing another spell on the sidelines.
Reus had to be taken off for Christian Pulisic in the 45th minute of yesterday's DFB Pokal final against Eintracht Frankfurt, where Dortmund emerged victorious with a 2-1 win - courtesy of this sublime chipped penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang:

It was 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.
