Football – Former BVB goalkeeper Bürki advises Reus to move to America – Sports

DORTMUND (dpa) — Former BVB goalkeeper Roman Burgh is suggesting Marco Reus move to the North American soccer league MLS after leaving Borussia Dortmund. Burgy has been playing for St. Louis City for two years, and Reus is without a club after his contract expires on June 30. The two played together in Dortmund from 2015 to 2022.

“Marco must come to MLS. “It's a great league,” Bürki told the “t-online” portal. The 33-year-old Swiss explained that the 35-year-old Reus is no longer young and has already had one or two problems with injuries in his career. “Here you are very much looked after, no risks are taken, and at the end of the season you don't need to play every game to become a champion.”

That means a system with playoffs after the regular season can skip players. “That's definitely good for him,” Burgi said of Reus.

The sporting director in St. Louis is Lutz Fannenstiel, who previously worked at Fortuna Dusseldorf. Pfannenstiel said Reus' move to MLS would be an upgrade for the league, even if the former national player doesn't come to St.Louis: “You have to accept that other clubs in metropolitan areas are more attractive than him. St. Louis.
