Dortmund's Marco Reus Out For Six Months With Cruciate Ligament Damage

 Reus is facing another lengthy spell on the sidelines after rupturing his cruciate ligament.
Marco Reus is facing six months out with cruciate ligament damage picked up in Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 DFB Pokal final win against Eintracht Frankfurt, according to a report in Bild.

Reus, 27, went off at half-time with the injury and is facing an extended spell on the sidelines.
"Maybe it's a bit of anterior cruciate ligament. You'll have to ask the doctor. It doesn't matter today," Reus said on ARD during the post-match celebrations.
"Reus received a knock when running into the box," manager Thomas Tuchel explained in his post-match news conference.
The Germany international had already missed much of Dortmund's season through injury.

The DFB Pokal win was Reus' first major trophy after losing the final three times previously, finishing as a Bundesliga runner-up on three occasions and losing a Champions League final in 2013.
