Marco Reus is expected to be out for less than a month. News that comes a few weeks before the start of the 2022 World Cup.
Borussia Dortmund and Germany attacking midfielder Marco Reus will be out for three to four weeks and will miss Nationalmannschaft Nations League matches against Hungary and England, his club announced on Sunday.
“The examinations that were carried out on Saturday did not show a fracture. It's an injury to an outer ligament of the right ankle. Marco will be out for three to four weeks and after that we hope he will be available again,” explained Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl to the Sport 1 television channel.
During the "Revierderby" against Schalke won 1-0 on Saturday at the Westfalenstadion, Dortmund had to do without captain Marco Reus from the half-hour mark. His right ankle twisted, raising fears for the worst for the German international (48 caps, 15 goals), released on a stretcher.
Reus had already missed out on Germany's 2014 World Cup triumph in Brazil due to an ankle injury. After two ligament tears during the 2014/15 season, he also missed Euro-2016 in France due to pubic inflammation.
