Klopp & Reus Win Big in German Football Awards

Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus has been named Footballer of the Year in Germany for the second time in his career.

The Association of German Sports Journalists, in conjunction with football magazine Kicker, gave Reus 150 of the 540 votes cast to place him ahead of Bayer Leverkusen prodigy Kai Havertz and Bayern Munich full-back Joshua Kimmich.

Reus’ former Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp, earned the Coach of the Year title after leading Liverpool to glory in the Champions League.

The accolades are considered the most prestigious of their kind in Germany, and this latest honour holds particular value for 30-year-old winger Reus, who battled back from an injury riddled 2017-18 season to score 21 competitive goals for BVB last term.

Reds manager Klopp is now a three-time Coach of the Year winner - a feat previously only achieved by Felix Magath.
