Marco Reus ruled out for four weeks after second ankle injury

Marco Reus is set to miss around four weeks of Bundesliga and national team action after being diagnosed with ligament damage in his left ankle. The injury comes after Reus missed out on the World Cup due to injury too, Deutsche Welle reports.

Germany’s national team midfielder Marco Reus has suffered his second injury of the year, and is now likely to miss another month of football.

The 25-year-old German international was injured in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Scotland in Dortmund, after a foul by Scotsman Charlie Mulgrew.

His club, Borussia Dortmund, tweeted on Monday that Reus had suffered damage to ligaments in his ankle and foot during the challenge. Reus was treated for a number of minutes on the sideline by German team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt.

The injury is the second major one for Reus inside of three months, after he damaged the same ankle in a friendly against Armenia, shortly before the German team departed to the World Cup in Brazil, which the team then won.

Following that injury Reus had been told he would need three months to recover, but he was back on the pitch earlier than expected, in his club’s first German Cup game against Stuttgarter Kickers.

Since his return from injury, Germany coach Joachim Löw had given Reus a starting position against both Argentina and Scotland.
