Marco Reus is no stranger to missing out big competitions due to injury troubles. The 2014 World Cup, although a successful one for the German national side was but another nursing period for the injured Dortmund frontman. Primed to make the the squad 2 years ago in Brazil, another national call up slips away from the 27-year-old German International as he is ruled out of this summer’s European Championship.
What some would call sheer bad luck has been preventing Reus from representing his national side that could really benefit from his presence in the starting line up as well a late substitute that could add pace and tricky control down his preferred left side wing position.
The Dortmund faithful has goals in him as well, having netted 20 times in the Bundesliga and Europa League this season he will really be missed in Joachim Löw’s side who are strong contenders coming off a World Cup win.
The Germany national team coach Löw made a statement about the unfortunate mishap; “He has massive injury problems and the medical staff was very skeptical about his ability to last through the coming weeks and such a grueling tournament. It is a bitter decision and bitter for Marco. It’s a bitter decision for us and for him, a disappointment for us all, because a Marco Reus in form, healthy and fit, would have been a huge addition.” as quoted in The Guardian.
