Reus: Preferably with the best players in the world, whether it's Messi or Ronaldo. In midfield it would be [Andrés] Iniesta. All of these are world-class players. 

Which goalkeeper do you dread facing the most?

Reus: It has to be Manuel Neuer.

Can Dortmund make it to the UEFA Europa League final?

Reus: I think we have the potential. But after the group stage we will meet even stronger opponents. Then it could come down to the form you are in on that specific day. But we have the potential and really want to get to the final!

Which club do you admire other than Dortmund?

Reus: In my childhood I always played as Barcelona on the PlayStation. That's because they have players of such extremely high quality and they play with a fantastic style as well.

Your favourite player in history?

Describe Dortmund fans in one word ...

Reus: There are a lot of words ... but which one do I pick? Unique.

Funniest guy in the Dortmund dressing room?

Reus: We have a lot of players who are funny and constantly in a good mood. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is always in good spirits, it's a lot of fun to be around him. He is one of the funniest guys in our team.
