Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc lauds praise on Marco Reus and says he feels confident the BVB captain will stay at the club for the rest of his career.
Reus extended his contract until 2023 a year ago, and Zorc would be surprised to see the 29-year-old leave the club.
"Marco is an identification figure and deeply rooted in Dortmund. I can't and don't want to imagine him playing for another club," the BVB boss told Sport Bild.
The German international was made captain prior to this season, and Zorc is very pleased with the way the 29-year-old has embraced the role.
"Marco has matured as a person. He takes more responsibility than before, both on and off the field. He has a natural authority and isn't the type of person who always has to put his foot down," Zorc said.
Reus played for Borussia Dortmund as a youth player, but left the club to join Rot Weiss Ahlen in 2006 after he was released by BVB. The German international was signed by Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2009 and played there until he returned to Dortmund in 2012.
