DTotD: Marco Reus learns not to run backwards near Robert Lewandowski

Dirty Tackle

Marco Reus has gotten off to a great start with new club Borussia Dortmund by scoring just 11 minutes into their 2-1 win over Werder Bremen to start the season. So striker Robert Lewandowski apparently felt it necessary to literally take him down in order to keep him from getting too full of himself.

As the team jogged backwards during a training session, Lewandowski slyly made his way behind Reus and got down on all fours in his path. This caused Reus to fall over him and roll up onto his neck while Lewandowski jogged off, clearly feeling quite pleased with himself.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
