Marco Reus: Could be sidelined for three months

Marco Reus faces a longer-than-expected three months out after picking up a foot injury in Germany's World Cup warm-up match against Armenia on Friday.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder was carried off the field in tears and was officially ruled out of the Brazil showpiece on Saturday after early scans confirmed a partial ligament tear in his left ankle.

It was hoped that he would be able to return in time for the start of the new Bundesliga season in August, but further tests at Dortmund's Knappschafts hospital with club doctor Markus Braun have ruled that out.

"The tests revealed that, in addition to his ankle injury, Reus also suffered damage to the heel bone with an expected recovery time of about three months," the club said on their official website.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
