Contrary to media reports, Borussia Dortmund's Germany international Marco Reus has not at any point postponed his comeback from a cruciate ligament injury sustained in the DFB Cup final. "I'm completely on track with my plan. The rehab has been great so far," he said.
The attacking midfielder tore his posterior cruciate ligament in the final against Eintracht Frankfurt on 27 May 2017 and underwent knee surgery around ten days later. Since then, the rehabilitation process has been without any complications.
As a rule, recovery from surgery on the posterior cruciate ligament – which is usually around eight months – is known to take longer than it would following an operation on the anterior cruciate ligament.
