Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus returned to team training on Tuesday after partially tearing a tendon in his adductors during a German Cup match at the beginning of February.
Initially, the 31-year-old was presumed to return four weeks after the injury he sustained against Werder Bremen, which was falsely diagnosed a muscular injury at the outset.
BVB captain back in team training
“Good news for BVB,” the club shared in a message, adding: “Captain Marco Reus started his re-integration into team training.” The German international shared a training pitch with his teammates for the first time on Tuesday noon and “completed all exercises in an easygoing training session led by coach Lucien Favre at the facilities in Hohenbuschei.”
Reus is scheduled to participate in large parts of team training in the coming days.
Comeback this season doubtful
As the Bundesliga is scheduled to conclude its final matchday on June 27, it is doubtful that the Dortmund star, who scored 11 league goals and provided 5 assists, makes his comeback in the 2019-20 campaign after an 18-week absence.
Reus adjusted his rehabilitation plan due to the Corona-Pause to “fully recuperate and to bring my body into even better shape,” according to his own words.
