Marco Reus gruesome ankle injury caught on camera

Published Add your comment

German football has woken up this morning in a state of shock as the news that star man Marco Reus will miss the World Cup with ankle ligament damage.

The Borussia Dortmund forward has been in sizzling form all season at the Westfalenhalle Stadium and was tipped to play a starring role under Joachim Low.

Reus was reportedly travelling to Brazil with a sizeable entourage of club scouts following him, most notably, Manchester United.

Louis van Gaal had reportedly placed Reus on his transfer shortlist as he prepared to take charge of Old Trafford, but the injury could now put all transfer plans form Manchester United on ice.

The injury overshadowed what was otherwise a very impressive performance from Germany against Armenia. Germany won the game 6-1, in which Miroslav Klose, 35, came off the bench to score his 69th for his country.

If Germany fail to reach expectation in Brazil - they are one of the favourites to win - they will no doubt point to the very moment Reus turned his ankle while trying to dispossess Armenia’s Artur Yedigaryan.

That moment can now be seen by clicking below.
