Dortmund - There was a real buzz in the Borussia Dortmund air earlier on Thursday after German megastar made his long-awaited return to team training.
The 25-year-old had been out of action since tearing ligaments in his right ankle in the five-time Bundesliga champions' 2-2 draw at SC Paderborn 07 on Matchday 12.
Light at the end of the tunnel
Die Schwarz-Gelben were also boosted by the return of World Cup winner Erik Durm following illness, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sokratis Papastathopoulos continued their respective quests for full fitness with some light running. Reus' comeback comes just two days before second-bottom BVB depart for their week-long winter training camp in La Manga, Spain. "We've got a busy schedule ahead of us and we're really looking forward to it," enthused head coach Jürgen Klopp, who now has just over three weeks to get his side shipshape for Matchday 18's trip to Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 31 January.
