Marco Reus rules himself out of the Euros

Marco Reus will not take part in this summer's Euros.
Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus has announced that he will not be representing Germany at this summer's European Championship.

The 31-year-old has ruled himself out of contention as he wants to recover from a 'very intense' season.

"After a complicated, exhausting and, in the end, ‘thank God’ successful season, I decided, together with the national team coach not to go to the European Championship," Reus stated on Instagram (via The Athletic).

“This decision was very difficult for me because I am always full of pride when I am 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 for the Euros and I will cheer as a fan and keep my fingers crossed.”

Germany coach Joachim Löw will announce his squad for the Euros tomorrow, Wednesday.
