Cape Town - Borussia Dortmund have been dealt a bitter blow with the news that midfielder Marco Reus will not play again this year due to injury.

Reus injured his ankle during a Bundesliga fixture against Paderborn on Saturday following a bad tackle from Marvin Bakalorz in the 65th minute of the match, with the Germany international stretchered off the field in considerable pain.

Speaking after the encounter, Dortmind manager Jurgen Klopp called the injury a “horrific moment”, and it has now been confirmed that Reus will be sidelined until January, reports Football411.

The injury is the latest in a string of setbacks for Reus, with the 25-year-old having struggled to maintain his fitness since he was ruled out of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after suffering a partial ligament tear in his left ankle in June.
