Joachim Loew Wants Marco Reus Back in the National Squad

The Germany head coach Joachim Loew has shown interest in bringing the long-lost Marco Reus back into the national squad. He is tipped to return after strings of impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund.

Marco Reus is one of the unluckiest players in the history of football. He was and is a very talented midfielder but frequent injuries kept him from reaching his true potential. He has missed games more than he has played them.

Since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2012, he has featured in 300 matches. He has a pretty decent stat with more than 200 goal involvements. He was not able to savor the 2014 World Cup win as he was out due to a ligament injury leaving him out from the squad.

This season looks to be the one where he has been the least injured out of them all he played. He has regained back his form and is helping his club in winning along with leading the young team. This might be the reason why Loew is interested in bringing him back.


Joachim Loew recently came out to express his thoughts on the Winger.

“With Marco, who has already had to overcome many setbacks, you could see at the beginning after his long injury that he had a bit of trouble with his pace. But he has what it takes to come back, he seems livelier again and has had some good moments. We will continue to monitor his progress closely and hope that he can continue the positive trend.” – Joachim Loew

Loew was also full of praises for Emre Can and Julian Brandt. Can has featured in almost every match for Dortmund and will be a competitor for the national spot.

The 24-year-old Brandt was praised by the German coach. However, he was also advised to keep the good form consistent if he expects to play for his country.

Three of their Der Klassiker teammates have also been tipped for a potential recall. Bayern Munich’ Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels, and Jerome Boateng are the three that Joachim Loew mentioned in his interview who could return to the squad.

Germany has been drawn into the ‘Group of Death’ in the Euro 2020 that will take place in June. They will have to face and win against World Cup 2018 winners France, Euro Cup holders Portugal and play-off winners Hungary to advance to the next round.
