BVB: Reinier returns to Real Madrid – open future | news from football

He came to BVB as a big promise and will soon leave as a big disappointment. For the former supertalent Reinier returns to Real Madrid. And then?

Some BVB fans are still confused when they hear the name “Achraf Hakimi”. The right-back was under contract for two years on loan at Borussia Dortmund from 2018 to 2020 and left a lasting impression there. Fast as an arrow, dangerous, intelligent.

Despite the weaknesses in defense, the Moroccan is considered one of the punches of Michael Zorc’s really big transfers. Even to this day, blacks are looking for an ideal offspring. With Thomas Meunier came a well-known replacement, who, despite the significant increase in performance for his debut season, still has not fully met expectations.

Reinier should become Hacking 2.0

The hack was a success story that BVB has been trying to repeat ever since. It should be similar to Reinier as with the then 19-year-old right-back. The Brazilian was also joined by Real Madrid in the summer of 2020 on a two-year loan. Plan: Reinier should be slowly integrated into the team and thanks to his variability, become the secret weapon in the Dortmund offensive.

Due to his good technique and a certain basic speed, Real’s loan could have been used on both sides, as a ten or even a hanging tip. A young Marco Reus, who could have become the new playmaker in case the captain would get hurt again. It is not in vain that Real had put on the table a proud 30 million euros for the teenager a year ago. Record for one U18 player.

Three coaches – no time to play

Under coach Lucien Favre, however, Reinier was only used four times as a joker and was usually on the field for only a few minutes. The question about the young Brazilian was quickly raised, but the Swiss apparently found no place for the striker in his system.

Following the dismissal of the coach, Edin Terzic, a youth coach whose great strength lay in the development of talent, took office. During his brief stint at BVB, the new coach brought Ansgar Knauff and Steffen Tigges to the first team, among others, and helped them both make their Bundesliga debuts. Extraordinary talent Giovanni Reyna took the step to become a regular player while Jadon Sancho became a cup hero. Despite injury concerns, there was still no place for Reinier on the squad.

In the summer of 2021, rumors became louder that the 20-year-old could leave BVB early after a year on loan. Real Madrid is unhappy with the playing time of Reinier, who only once started in his opening season. The riot also sparked Reinier-Pope Mauro Brasilia with statements that Dortmund did not value his son.

Over time things calmed down and the playmaker stayed. But his bench press situation did not change under the direction of Marco Rose, the third coach in the group. Erling Haaland, Marco Reus, Julian Brandt, Donyell Malen, Thorgan Hazard, Giovanni Reyna – they all have something in common. They all lost more than one game this season due to injury, usually several of them at once. And yet Reinier had to wait last weekend for his first starting eleven.

Reinier does not use his chance at Bayern

“He can help the team with his style of play, which would be needed in some games,” said Pope Brasilia. Spoks AND purpose before the winter break: “He controls the game and owns the ball like few others, but it seems Borussia Dortmund did not understand this. They did not use that option.”

Ironically, it must be against FC Bayern. In the ball game, the young man was given the chance to try from the beginning and the Zika turned to this “option”. But Reinier’s appearance was anything but a letter of recommendation. The almost invisible playmaker was replaced after just 31 ball actions. The Brazilian radiated neither creativity nor great passion.

The Reinier chapter in Dortmund is coming to an end with BVB’s last fourth competitive game before the end of the season. The return to Real Madrid was decided when the loan expired – but what will happen next? It is almost impossible for the former football master to have a chance to play in the CL semifinals next year. So where do you go with the 30 million man?

For Reinier there is only the next loan left

After two years with only 735 minutes of play, the young creative player is dying to play. This only happens at a new club. Due to the high transfer fee for the youngster, whom he is unlikely to bring back next summer, a sale seems impossible. So there is only one loan left, in which Reinier will probably look very closely at the declining club after the last two seasons.

According to father Brasilia, there were still many top clubs interested in his son in the winter. However, so far there have been no concrete rumors. Reinier will probably also have to wonder if a real top club is really the right address to find his way back into top form and get the necessary match practice.

In any case, the 20-year-old is currently far from a regular place at Real Madrid, which the youngster once described as a lifelong dream.
