Reinier Jesus, who was hailed as a huge talent from the start, ventured to sign with Real Madrid at the age of 18 for a staggering 30 million euros. But he struggled to establish himself there and was eventually loaned to Borussia Dortmund. His career took a first step backward, but things became worse because Reinier never earned himself a run for BVB under three coaches in two years.
Reinier only played 741 minutes in 39 competitive games over the course of two years while playing for Lucien Favre, Edin Terzic, and Marco Rose. He said in his own statement that the media’s portrayal of him had a profound impact on him as well.
In a recent interview with Brazilian newspaper, Globo Esporte the Girona loanee elaborated his time at North Rhine-Westphalia.
“I’ve been unable to improve as a football player. I’ve had good training. You’re training incredibly well, congrats, and keep it up, people who I don’t want to mention said to me. But I refrained from playing what I didn’t comprehend,” the forward mentioned.
“I accomplished my tasks. I worked out, went home, and returned the following day on schedule.” Reinier Jesus stated, “I did everything I could and should. Because of this, I have a completely ‘clean conscience,’ especially because he adds, a little forgivingly. “It was a decision. I had respect for everyone, including the club and the players who were permitted to participate. It’s just unfortunate.”
