On Thursday, Mario Götze tweeted a photo that made BVB fans emotional. It was a picture taken alongside his best buddy Marco Reus. As Dortmund start their preparations for the second half of the season, the two German stars are coming back from their respective injury layoffs.

It’s as if it’s the 2012-13 season all over again. “Götzeus” was such a dominant force that season, it comes as a shock to realize it was the only one they played together in the yellow-and-black kit. The two, alongside Robert Lewandowski, took Europe by storm to help Borussia Dortmund reach the Champions League final in 2013.
Even though Bayern intervened to break-up one of the best bromances in football, the bond between Marco and Mario persisted. After scoring the winner to make Germany the 2014 World Cup winners, Götze made sure to pay tribute to Reus, who sadly missed the World Cup, by displaying his pal’s number 21 jersey.
Currently in Marbella (Spain), Reus has started training and is likely to return to action in February. Götze, who after numerous ups and downs got back to his best in the Hinrunde (More on which can be read in Christopher Smith’s article), is also eyeing a return in 2018.
The two lovable players are about to step on to the pitch together.
Are you having flashbacks Dortmund fans? Those beautiful one-twos against Ajax? The jump and shoulder hit celebrations? We’re about to see all of those in 2018 and it is safe to say that many of you, at least those on twitter, are excited!
Bog is all of us!

Even Obama is excited!
The duo, alongside Gonzalo Castro and Lukasz Piszczek, are wearing blue jerseys in training to tell their teammates to not tackle them. We most certainly can’t allow a training injury rob us of a blockbuster comeback of the most exciting duo in German football, can we? I think the answer is pretty obvious!
