Cologne - Marco Reus crowned a memorable week for both him and Borussia Dortmund by taking's Matchday 21 Player of the Week award.

The 25-year-old Germany attacking midfielder inspired the five-time champions to a 4-2 victory over 1. FSV Mainz 05 in Friday's encounter, three days after signing a new contract until 2019.

Klopp full of praise

If the sight of the local boy putting pen to paper on a new deal was not sweet enough for Dortmund fans last week, his exquisite pass with the outside of his right boot to tee up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make it 3-2 was a fine blend of honey and sugar.

"Marco's mind is now free and his performance against Mainz proves it," commented BVB coach Jürgen Klopp, adding: "This is also why I substituted him - so he could be given a more than deserved standing ovation. His assist for Aubameyang was out of this world."

Four-goal Dost in second place

The former Borussia Mönchengladbach star also put Dortmund 2-1 in front as he coolly rounded Mainz 05 custodian Stefanos Kapino. A good enough shift to earn Dortmund three points, and Reus the Player of the Week award on 53 per cent.

Not even scoring four goals in one game was enough for Bas Dost to clinch the prize with the Dutch VfL Wolfsburg forward coming second with 29 per cent after his stunning display in VfL Wolfsburg's 5-4 success at Bayer 04 Leverkusen, while another inspirational showing from Thomas Müller in FC Bayern München's 8-0 thrashing of Hamburger SV earned the Germany attacker 18 per cent and third place.
