Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus signed a contract extension with his boyhood club to the end of next season. Reus’ previous contract was set to expire two months from now. The 33-year-old attacking midfielder has so far netted six goals in the Bundesliga this season and has played a pivotal part in Dortmund’s run to first place in the standings with five games to go.

Reacting to this contract extension, Marco Reus spoke about how he has been elated with this decision and hopes to continue pushing for the title this season. He further expressed that he loves playing for Borussia Dortmund as the club has the best fans. Reus also stated that he can’t see himself playing for any other club in the world. 

"I'm delighted," said Reus. "We have a huge objective in front of us in the Bundesliga title, but I just want to keep giving my best for this club, where I've spent over half my life. For me, there's nothing better than scoring goals and celebrating wins with the best fans in the world, at the finest stadium in the world. I've always said there's no other club I'd rather play for in my career than BVB."

The 33-year-old first joined Dortmund at the age of six as a youth player and rejoined the senior squad in 2012 from Borussia Moenchengladbach. Since then he has emerged as a leader and one of the most influential players despite an injury-plagued career. 

Reus has lifted two German Cups but he and Dortmund would hope to win the Bundesliga as they are now a point clear at the top of the Bundesliga standings with five matches remaining. For the highest-skilled German attacking midfielder, this would be his first-ever German league crown amidst Bayern Munich’s unstoppable domination.
