Dortmund angry over fake Reus quotes

Borussia Dortmund have hit out at sections of the media for publishing fake quotes attributed to Marco Reus.

Borussia Dortmund insist Marco Reus has not spoken to foreign media about his future.
Borussia Dortmund insist Marco Reus has not spoken to foreign media about his future.

• Gundogan injury uncertainty

Reus, who has been linked with a move away from the Westfalenstadion, has been at the centre of headlines in Germany after the press picked up on remarks he was reported to have made to foreign media.

Earlier this month, Reus was quoted as telling Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper that he would not follow Dortmund teammates Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski to Bayern Munich because “money is not everything.”

The German media then covered quotes Reus had reportedly given to Spanish site sport.es in which he is alleged to have said: “I cannot deny that I feel flattered by the interest from Barcelona, but at the moment I am focused on my current club. At the end of the season, anything is possible.”

However, Dortmund took to Facebook on Tuesday to insist that Reus had not made either statement and that sections of the media had unfairly represented the Germany international.

“For the second time in the last couple of days, we fumed when looking at the media round-up,” the club wrote. “The reason is unfair reporting. We think it’s time to say it right out in the open here.

“In all honesty, everyone here at BVB loves to work with reputable media -- which is the majority of the guild, across all borders and continents -- but we have been infuriated by the black sheep who make up content.”

BVB said the quotes from the Mirror were fake and singled out a particular news outlet, sportal.de, for reporting the comments Reus had allegedly given to sport.es, which they said they had not been able to find on the Spanish outlet’s website. The club stressed that, in any case, the player had not made any such statement about his own future.

Reus' alleged comments about Barcelona are still available on sport.es in a story featuring a video of Reus discussing compatriot Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s prospective move to the Camp Nou, but Dortmund director of communication Sascha Fligge has told ESPN FC that one of the club’s press officers had been in attendance during that interview and Reus had not discussed his own future.

Fligge said: “Marco Reus would never provoke such controversy.”

The Dortmund statement ended with an attack on the “small minority of national and international media” who “besmirch their reputable colleagues’ good names” by inventing content that is picked up “by news outlets, TV stations, radio stations, news wires and daily newspapers.”
