Borussia Dortmund have recently confirmed that Marco Reus has been sidelined “indefinitely” due to the adductor problems. Out since the early parts of the year, the club captain was expected to return to the pitch at the start of next season, but it seems he might be out for a longer period. Here in this article, we will discuss what the injury of Marco Reus could mean for Borussia Dortmund next season.
Julian Brandt to continue operating as a number ten?
Lucien Favre was tipped to face a selection dilemma, following the expected return of Reus. The German international was widely considered to retake his role as the number ten, which would have forced his compatriot Julian Brandt to either operate in a wider role or central midfield.
Ever since joining from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, Brandt has played an instrumental role in propelling the Dortmund attack with his creativity and work ethic. His versatility has also opened up new possibilities for coach Favre, with the German notably featuring in central midfield in the recently concluded 2019/20 campaign.
However, with Reus out, it seems Brandt will be considered in the number ten role, just behind the main striker, Erling Haaland. That does, however, depend on whether or not Favre reverts to a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Will it affect Jadon Sancho’s future?
Naturally, Reus’ prolonged absence shouldn’t affect the future of Jadon Sancho since both are different type of players. However, a key factor in this argument is the amount of influence both have in instigating the Dortmund attack and creating the chances in the final third.
In that respect, Reus’ absence should definitely influence the club into keeping hold of Sancho this summer. The English international is a crucial component in BVB’s offensive unit and had been the reason why the Black and Yellows didn’t struggle in terms of creativity, despite having their club captain out injured for the most of this campaign.
Giovanni Reyna set for a breakthrough?
Even before Reus’ injury, Giovanni Reyna was always tipped to reach new heights during the 2020/21 campaign. That prospect is all the more likely now as the absence of the German international should provide the youngster with a more prominent role in the first-team.
It was the case during the second half of the 2019/20 campaign when Reyna was given a handful of opportunities in the first-team. It is sure to improve in the upcoming campaign, especially with Brandt now being forced to operate further upfront. Hence, we can pretty much expect the young American to make a breakthrough in the Bundesliga.
