Title announcement from the BVB captain! Marco Reus believes in the quality of his black and yellow in 2021/22 and finally wants to set his sights on the championship trophy again! Reus has identified the main problem in recent years.
With a strong spurt at the end of the 2020/21 season, Borussia Dortmund finally achieved the goals of the season. In the Bundesliga, thanks to a race to catch up with third place, black and yellow managed to qualify for the Champions League, which was so important, and in the cup it was even enough for the title.
Captain Marco Reus wants to go even higher in 2021/22. The BVB captain has already stated that the last third of the previous season must be the claim in the new season. In plain language: The top of the table should be attacked again.
While the club officials are discreetly holding back with announcements, the 32-year-old wants to seriously attack permanent champions FC Bayern again and fulfill his longed-for wish for the championship trophy. In any case, Reus is sure that Borussia 21/22 has the quality for it.
“We have the squad to become German champions, win the trophy and advance in the Champions League!” – a self-confident announcement from the captain (via picture).
For Reus it is also clear what BVB has been missing in recent years to attack the top of the table: Constancy! “Each individual has to be more consistent. We have shown room for improvement over the last few years. Of course, luck also takes place. But we can work for that with passion and heart,” said Reus.
One factor for the hoped-for success is of course the new trainer. Marco Rose should play full throttle football with heart and passion again with BVB – which is of course correspondingly successful. Predecessor Edin Terzic set the bar very high for this at the end of the season.
Rose has to get along without Jadon Sancho. The 21-year-old’s move to Manchester United is finally perfect. Reus also knows that the qualities of the noble technician will be lacking in BVB: “With Jadon, someone has left us who has given us an incredible amount. Not only with his goal participation, but also with his manner. I am very, very sad about his departure, but I’m also happy that he can fulfill his childhood dream. “
On the other hand, Donyell Malen will serve as a successor in Dortmund who is a slightly different type of player than Sancho. Painting is lightning fast and more center forward or second point than winger. It is quite possible that the alignment of black and yellow can be adjusted with painting and under rose.
A double top with Malen and Haaland could soon be permanently on the field. The targeted full-throttle football could be implemented in the best possible way. But beyond the tactical formation, Reus has recognized the main problem at BVB. Even with painting and without Sancho, the following applies: With consistency in the game and the results, Borussia has the greatest room for improvement. If that succeeds, the quality in the squad should be high enough to defeat at least 16 of the 18 Bundesliga teams. In the championship battle with Bayern and maybe also RB Leipzig, it depends on who delivers the most consistently.
In any case, Reus is sure that his Borussia is strong enough to be at the top of the table until the end!
