Major concerns in Germany about injured Reus: ‘He was in a lot of pain’

Marco Reus suffered a serious injury during the game between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04. The injured attacker had to leave the field by stretcher after just 32 minutes and told trainer Edin Terzic at halftime that he was in a lot of pain.
Dortmund won the ever-fraught Kohlenpott derby on Saturday afternoon. Despite the win, the mood will not be too good at Die Borussen. Reus, already good for two goals and two assists this season, went through his ankle in the first half. โ€œWe fear that his ligaments have been damaged. For Marco and ourselves, we hope that he will be back on the field soon,โ€ said sports director Sebastian Kehl after the race.
Whether that is realistic remains to be seen. โ€œIn the coming days, the seriousness of the injury will be further investigated,โ€ Terzic said at the closing press conference. โ€œI was able to talk to Marco for a while at rest. He was very disappointed and in a lot of pain. Hes no longer in the stadium.โ€
Reus, who was replaced by the surefire Youssoufa Moukoko, played his 250th Bundesliga game on Saturday. After this anything but festive milestone, the attacker will immediately be concerned about the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. Reus previously missed the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 European Championships due to serious injuries.
