Joe Scally excited to reunite with Gio Reyna in Bundesliga
Borussia Monchengladbach announced the signing of the 17-year-old United States defender and he will join the German side ahead of the 2021 Bundesliga season.
Joe Scally started his career in the youth academy of New York City FC in 2017 where he played alongside Gio Reyna, who two years later joined Borussia Dortmund. Scally and Reyna formed a friendship during the two seasons they played together and they will be reunited next year in the Bundesliga.
Scally finally made his debut with the first team this year and he has played three games with New York City FC, one as a starter and two coming in as a sub. During an interview with German newspaper Bild, he talked about his relationship with Gio Reyna, who has become a key player for Borussia Dortmund this season.
“We were always together and he became my best friend. We talk all the time via Facetime and I know we will be playing in different teams but I am glad that we will be closer and we will be rivals next season,” said Scally.
