Schurrle excited to finally link up with Reus and Gotze.
Andre Schurrle hopes Sunday’s 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach can signal the beginning of a sustained run in the Borussia Dortmund team for the attacking trident he formed with Marco Reus and Mario Gotze.
Schurrle provided the assist for fit-again team-mate Reus to score the only goal against his former side at Borussia-Park, as the Germany international trio finally started a Bundesliga match together for the first time.
Both Reus, who suffered a torn cruciate knee ligament in May, and Gotze have battled regular fitness and health problems in recent seasons, and Schurrle acknowledged their impatience to finally link up together for the club.
“It feels amazing and we produced a goal – Mario played it to me, I played it to Marco and he scored, so it’s amazing,”
“It’s a good feeling. We are very good friends and we’ve wanted this for a long time.
“Now it’s finally there and now we have to get healthy and then play together like we used to.”
Marco Reus’ brilliant goal against his former club sealed the 1-0 victory.
