Marco Reus: “I made the decision to give my body time to recover.”

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has announced that he will not be participating in this summer’s European Championships with Germany and instead will focus on his regeneration.

Posted via Instagram, Reus said: “After a complicated, exhausting and, in the end, ‘thank God’ successful season, I decided, together with (Joachim Löw), not to go to the European Championships.

“This decision was very difficult for me because I’m always full of pride when I’m allowed to appear for my country. But after a very intense year for me personally and achieving my goals at BVB, I made the decision to give my body time to recover.

“I will make good use of the break in order to be able to start the new season optimally! I wish Jogi and our team all the best and I will cheer as a fan and keep my fingers crossed.”
