Reus not nominated for Champions League
Marco Reus is missing in the Borussia Dortmund squad for the Champions League. This is a definite fact: the superstar is no longer expected this year. Borussia Dortmund did not nominate Marco Reus for the Champions League squad, but BVB did not register the injured national player with UEFA, which means that he cannot play in the group stage. Reus suffered a cruciate ligament injury at the end of last season’s cup final and is likely to be out of action by the end of the year, and Dortmund definitely does not appear to be expecting a comeback in 2017. The Champions League preliminary round will take place from 12. September until 6 September In the new year, Reus is expected to return again – and Borussia will be able to make changes to the squad. The clubs are entitled to add 25 players to their A-reporting list and there is also a B-list, on which any number of additional players are allowed to appear. However, they must meet a number of conditions: Professionals must be registered on or after 1 January 2009. The family should have been born on 1 January 1996 and between 15 years of age. The club’s registration with UEFA is based on the club’s registration date and the date of its registration with UEFA for two consecutive years, thus registering seven additional players, including Christian Pulisic. Newcomer Jadon Sancho is not covered by the regulation and, like Reus, is not in the squad.
