Reus greets Dortmund: “It’s time to pass the baton to the younger players”

The Borussia Dortmund striker was interviewed by the company’s official channels Marco Reus commented on his farewell to the yellow and black colors at the end of the season: “The fans make this extraordinary club even more extraordinary. How they accompany us on away games while there’s no need to even talk about home games. Borussia Dortmund has grown incredibly in recent years, it has become also an international brand and has received recognition all over the world. I am happy to have been present and to have been able to contribute. Now it is time to pass the baton to the younger players.

What makes Dortmund special? His people! They are honest and direct, they work hard. And as a result they want to see us tear it up for the club. If we give our best, even the bad games will forgive us. They live in this city and in this club. Your best match? This is a difficult question after twelve years and seven major finals, with great victories and great defeats. I would say: Malaga. This night was even different, in terms of tension, atmosphere: everything was there.

Your feelings? I don’t know yet. There were lots of things to do around. I can’t wait: the last home game of the season, my last game here! Let’s hope it doesn’t rain. The stadium is sold out. Needless to say, there will be some melancholy and sadness, but I managed to bear it long enough and we still have a huge game on our hands after that.”
