Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus is as good as the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, according to team-mate Alex Witsel. With 24 goals for BVB last season, playmaker Reus managed to earn himself the award for the Bundesliga player of the season for the third time in his impressive career.
When asked if Reus is to the standard of Belgian internationals De Bruyne and Hazard, Witsel was adamant his Dortmund colleague should be classed in the same bracket. “Yes, he (Reus) is qualitatively on the same level. For me, he is a top player,” the midfielder said. “Of course he deserves it (Bundesliga award). He’s a fantastic player, his shooting technique is crazy. “He’s a very important player for us, the club, the fans.”
