Reus, who has made just 24 appearances for Dortmund in a injury-riddled season, was substituted in the first half of the final, which Dortmund won 2-1 to secure their first major trophy in five years.

“In the coming days, there will be further tests and a decision will be made on the necessary treatment,” the club said on their website. (www.bvb.de)

“Borussia Dortmund will not be able to make a precise prediction about his possible downtime and we wish our ‘cup winner’ a speedy recovery.”

Reus was already omitted from the Germany squad for next month’s Confederation Cup in Russia.
