Dortmund back Reus after TV outburst

Dortmund back under-fire captain Reus after TV outburst

Borussia Dortmund bosses have given their backing to under-fire club captain Marco Reus following his outburst on live television over points dropped in the Bundesliga title race.

"You can write what you want. We have a clear position. Marco is our captain and will remain so – there is no reason to change anything," director of sport Michael Zorc told reporters before Saturday's home game against Werder Bremen.

Reus was fuming when Dortmund conceded a late own goal in Sunday's 2-2 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt, leaving them third in the table and three points behind leaders RB Leipzig, drawing fresh questions about the team's mental strength.

Dortmund need a win over Bremen to stave off further questions having already dropped five league points, including three from a shock 3-1 defeat at promoted Union Berlin

Against Bremen, Dortmund will be without left-back Nico Schulz, who has a foot injury, while Favre said defender Mats Hummels might sit out, without specifying why.
