Marco Reus (born 31 May 1989) is a German professional footballer who plays for and captains Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and the Germany national team.
Reus spent his youth career at Borussia Dortmund, prior to leaving for Rot Weiss Ahlen. He joined Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2009, and had his most successful season in 2012, scoring 18 goals and providing 12 assists in the Bundesliga to help Borussia Mönchengladbach secure a place in the following season’s UEFA Champions League. Reus returned to his hometown club Borussia Dortmund at the end of that season, helping the club reaching the 2013 UEFA Champions League Final in his first season. With Dortmund, Reus won three DFL-Supercups (in 2013, 2014 and 2019), and the DFB-Pokal in 2017, and he has scored over 100 goals for the club. He has been named Bundesliga Player of the Season on three occasions.
With the Germany national team, Reus has only 44 caps, due to his recurring injuries in recent years. He missed the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which Germany won, but played in UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
On 6 April 2021, Reus scored in a 1–2 loss to Manchester City in the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, to become Borussia Dortmund’s all-time Champions League top scorer with 18 goals.
