Marco Reus’ celebration has got Liverpool fans really excited

Is he angling for a move?

Is this a come and get me plea?

Marco Reus has been a victim of persistent injuries scuppering his opportunities throughout his entire career. He missed both the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 European Championships through injury and while he certainly has love for Borussia Dortmund, injuries are probably the reason he is still there and hasn’t made the step up to one of Europe’s elite clubs.

But he has started to hit a run of form recently having returned from a nine month lay-off with two goals in three matches. The first goal against his old club Borussia Mönchengladbach was a vintage Reus peach, in off the bar. The second, against Ausburg this weekend was an opportunistic poach, but it was his celebration that grabbed people’s attention.

Liverpool fans’ in particular were excited by this celebration. Roberto Firmino recently used the martial arts style kick during Liverpool’s demolition of Porto in the Champions League.

So obviously, the fact that Reus brought out the acrobatic celebration must mean that he is angling for a move to Anfield, right?

That’s certainly how some fans perceived it.

It’s quite an unorthodox come and get me plea, but it would be hard for Reus to turn down the chance to work with his old boss Jürgen Klopp.

If he did end up at Anfield, the problem would be finding him a place in the team given the form of Sadio Mané, Mo Salah and Firmino. Although, given how many games Liverpool are likely to play next season and how much time he is likely to be out of action for, that might not be much of a problem.
