"Whilst on vacation, I've had much time to think and have decided to pass on the captain's armband to another," Reus says in a short video. "I was allowed to wear this armband proudly for five years. That was a great honor. Thank you for the wonderful support."
As for who will serve as the squad's skipper during the upcoming season, a decision probably won't be forthcoming until well into Dortmund's training camp in mid August. Potential candidates include defenders Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle. Following their stellar seasons, BVB trainer Edin Terzic may also opt to pass the title onto Julian Brandt or Emré Can.
