Bio

Marco Reus was born in Dortmund, West Germany on 31 May 1989. An attacking midfielder, he has primarily been deployed on the left wing during his career so far, although he is equally cpaable of playing centrally or on the right. He is known for his close control, speed, long range shooting, set piece ability and creative play and has become a prolific goalscorer.

At youth level, Reus played for local side Post SV Dortmund before joining the Borussia Dortmund youth academy in 1996. He remained there until the summer of 2006, at which point he joined Rot Weiss Ahlen. He attracted attention during the 2008-09 campaign, as a 19-year-old, scoring four league goals for the team. As a result, he secured a move to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer of 2009.

It was during his time at Borussia Mönchengladbach that Reus fully established himself as a prolific goalscorer. His best individual season came in the 2011-12 campaign, where he scored 21 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions. His performances that year were enough for him to be named as the Footballer of the Year in Germany. Prior to the 2012-13 season, he moved back to Borussia Dortmund, citing a desire to challenge for trophies and compete in the UEFA Champions League on a regular basis. Over the course of his first season with the club, he scored 19 goals and helped the club to win the DFL-Supercup and finish as Champions League runners up.

On the international stage, Reus made his debut for Germany's senior team in 2011 and played a part in his country's Euro 2012 campaign, most notably scoring in the quarter final against Greece. However, it was during the qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup that Reus truly secured his place as a regular member of the team.
