Marco Reus: Happy at Borussia Dortmund and targeting Champions League glory

Marco Reus: Happy at Borussia Dortmund and targeting Champions League glory

Reus has a long-term contract with Dortmund and is confident he can fulfil his ambitions with the Bundesliga club, but there has been speculation linking him with a big-money switch to English football.

Manchester City and Manchester United have both previously been credited with an interest in the Germany international, while recent reports have suggested that he is also a target for Chelsea.

"Chelsea, too?" Reus said in The Guardian. "Really? But the press is often wrong so why worry about it?"

The 23-year-old has no plans to head to the Premier League, saying: "You should never say never. But I have a valid [five-year] contract with a team I love.

"We have plans to win trophies here. I also love the city because everyone is so passionate about football."

Dortmund travel to Malaga on Wednesday for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, and Reus feels they can go all the way and claim European glory.

He said: "Yes, of course we could win it. I believe we can do it because we have done well to come this far.

"Malaga are next and at this stage of the Champions League you have the ability to win it. Everything feels possible now. But Malaga are a good side. Small things will decide the outcome but we can definitely go much further.

"In all our Champions League matches we deserved to win because we forced our opponents to play our game. Obviously a team like Madrid has many world-class players and so they're hard to beat. But our pressing style causes a lot of problems for every team - even Real."

Idol

Reus also revealed that he had modelled his game on a former Dortmund player who left for Arsenal in 2006.

"My idol was always Tomas Rosicky. He used to be phenomenal. He had such a good eye for an opening and knew where his team-mates were, and he was so quick," Reus explained.

"Rosicky had great technique and was so intelligent and mature even though he was still young at Dortmund. I copied everything about him - right down to his sweatbands.

"He was so unlucky he had bad injuries at Arsenal because, otherwise, he would be one of the world's best players."
