Berlin: Borussia Dortmund`s Marco Reus will miss the rest of 2014, including Wednesday`s Champions League clash at Arsenal, after suffering his sixth ankle injury in a year, the club confirmed Sunday.
The 25-year-old was stretchered off after tearing the ligaments in his right ankle following a foul by Paderborn`s Marvin Bakalorz, who was later booked, after 66 minutes of Dortmund`s 2-2 away draw on Saturday.
It is Reus` sixth ankle injury in the last 12 months.
Torn ligaments in his left ankle ruled Reus out of Germany`s victorious World Cup campaign and he missed seven games after injuring the same ankle in the world champions` 2-1 win over Scotland in a Euro 2016 qualifier in September.
"We wish Marco a speedy recovery, no one can have such bad luck," Dortmund`s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said on Sunday.
Dortmund have already qualified for the Champions League`s knock-out phase with four straight wins before facing the Gunners, but are 15th in the Bundesliga after losing seven of their first 12 league games this season.
