Reinier: green shoots

The Brazilian scored his first goal at Dortmund against Arminia Bielefeld. Terzic is starting to count on him: he has played in three of the last four games.


As usual, Reinier is having a hard time adjusting to the elite of European football. At 19, Madrid decided to give him to Borussia Dortmund so that he could add minutes in a high-level league, but the season has been very difficult for him. First, under Lucien Favre, he did not have minutes. With the departure of the Swiss coach and the arrival of Edin Terzic, more continuity was expected, but the weeks passed and he still did not play regularly.

This led the player and Madrid to consider a change of scenery. In the winter market, the possibility of looking for a new team to go on loan was valued. However, Reinier decided to continue fighting for a position.

Something has changed in the last few weeks. Reinier, increasingly adapted to his team, has begun to add minutes on a regular basis. His work has earned him so that his coach has counted on him for three of the last four Bundesliga games. After eight games without jumping onto the pitch, several of them without even being called up due to physical problems, he re-enters the rotation.

To round out his good moment, he saw the door for the first time this season. It was in the 3-0 victory against Arminia Bielefeld. The Brazilian rounded off the win by culminating a great collective play. He did it at the pass of Haaland, with whom he gets along very well as they usually show on social networks by sharing photos together and leaving comments.

In fact, this is another key aspect for Reinier to decide to stay at Dortmund. The atmosphere in the squad is ideal for him, surrounded by young and talented guys with whom to grow hand in hand. In addition to Haaland, he also has a good relationship with Gio Reyna, Jadon Sancho or Bellingham.
