Marco Reus is apparently seriously injured in the derby against Schalke

Marco Reus from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund apparently sustained a serious injury after just 27 minutes in the 181st Revierderby against Schalke 04, which BVB won 1-0.

The 33-year-old twisted his right foot in a duel with Schalke’s Florian Schick and hit his hand on the lawn in pain.

After several minutes of treatment, the BVB captain was carried off the pitch on a stretcher to the encouraging applause of the BVB fans. Of course, it is not yet known how serious the injury is. Already at half-time, Reus was taken to a hospital with the help of the Dortmund doctors, the reported picture.

“The ankle didn’t look good at first glance. We all hope it’s not as bad as it looked,” said Mats Hummels after the game, which BVB won 1-0. Youssoufa Moukoko also scored the winning goal “Hope and pray” that Reus is not seriously injured: “He is our captain, with him we feel better on the pitch.”

In any case, a serious injury would be particularly bitter for Reus, as the World Cup in Qatar begins in just over two months. Reus was already injured when he was world champion in 2014 in Brazil. The 48-time national player will be missing at least in the two Nations League games in Leipzig against Hungary (September 23) and in London three days later against England.
