There are times when as much ever you try, your chances of succeeding will be less. Gio Reyna currently goes in that situation. The USA international this season has been restricted to a substitute role at Borussia Dortmund. Hence, ahead of Copa America, the Ex-Premier League boss backed him to leave his current club for Real Sociedad.

The fans of the US national team will hope that the 21-year-old can get away from the Dortmund nightmare. At the moment, his issues with the German giants are increasing at a rapid pace owing to the uncertainty of his future.

The January transfer window has been a dreamland for the Borussia Dortmund fans. They have signed their former hero, Jadon Sancho, back on loan. However, the signing has hurt the chances of Gio Reyna even more. His game-time for the rest of the season is now more limited than the first half. Amid the rumors of him leaving, ex-Premier League boss Jesse Marsch has revealed the best move for him in a podcast.

He said, “If he is listening to the show If he is listening to what I think Real Sociedad would be an amazing spot for him. I think that would be perfect. I think they would get a lot out of him. Their coach is fantastic. They play great football and they have a great team. I think it would be the best thing for him.”

Jesse Marsch recommending the name of Real Sociedad does not come as a surprise. According to reports, Gio Reyna has signed with the famous agent Jorge Mendes to get him a move. As soon as he signed the agreement with Mendes, the Spanish media linked him with a move to the La Liga side. However, Real Sociedad wants to sign him on loan.

The club is sixth in the La Liga table and will face Paris Saint Germain in the next round of the Champions League. But, as far as Reyna is concerned, along with Marsch, another pundit has also urged him to leave the German giants.

One take at a time

I can't express how deep my passion for the sport runs, especially when it comes to the English Premier League. Over the years, I've dedicated myself to understanding the intricate details of the game, both on and off the field. What's fascinating is that my beloved club is Newcastle United, and I've been on a rollercoaster journey with them, from their triumphant promotion from the second tier to the recent takeover and even their remarkable qualification for the Champions League last season.
