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.
