Marco Reus happy to pen new Borussia Dortmund contract

Marco Reus

The German forward put pen to paper on a new contract with Borussia Dortmund on Friday, signalling his intent to remain with the Ruhr giants until the summer of 2023. Since childhood I have dreamed of running aground in black and yellow and playing for this club.

"I have worn the Borussia shirt since 2012".

"The fact that the club have repeatedly helped me in less than ideal times has also had a positive effect on my decision", he said.

'We are delighted that he made a decision to extend his contract early and for a long term despite past offers from the world's best clubs, ' said club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke in a statement. "The club has supported me in tough times, so it was important for me to thank them", Reus continued. Since then he has had a hand in over 100 Bundesliga goals for the club, scoring 92 times in all competitions and putting Borussia 1-0 ahead on an incredible 39 occasions.

Reus, 28, has undoubted talent but his career has been fragmented by injuries which forced him out of both the last World Cup and Euro 2016.

Since his return four weeks ago, Reus scored three goals and set up two more.

"Marco makes every team better", said sporting director Michael Zorc. He is the player for the important moments and the important goals. "He's a defining face of our club".

"I have a special personal relationship with him".
