Marco Reus will not play in the European Championship. As the football player announced, he made such an agreement with the coach Joachim Low. After the injury of Marc Andre Ter Stegen, Joachim Low was left without Marco Reus.
The 31-year-old Borussia Dortmund player talked to Low and made the decision not to go to the Old Continent Championship. The reason is: he wants to rest. This all closes the bitter taste for Reus in the national team. He did not play in the European Championships in 2016 due to injury, just as he did not play in the World Cup in 2014 when he was injured in the last preparatory match.
So, as a fan, he followed the winning of the title in Brazil. He played in Russia, but then his team did not do well. "After a complicated, exhausting and, thank God, successful season, I decided, together with the coach, not to go to the European Championship."
"This decision is very difficult for me because I have always been full of pride when I play for the national team. I made the decision to provide a chance for the body to rest. I wish them all the best at the European Championships and as a fan, I will keep my fingers crossed, "Reus wrote.
If there is no Reus, there are all chances that Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller will appear.
Hummels and Muller
Low will announce the list of 26 players on Wednesday. It is interesting that Muller and Hummels will mark their return to the national team, and that it was Low who removed them from the same 2018.
This shows that there is no bad blood in the German national team and that Low wants to lead the best he has to the championship. And Hummels and Muller obviously deserve an invitation in their current form. The Germans will play against France on June 15, four days later against Portugal, and on June 23 in Munich against Hungary.
Germany does not have such a strong team as was the case in 2014 when they won the World Cup. This all closes the bitter taste for Reus in the national team. He did not play in the European Championships in 2016 due to injury, just as he did not play in the World Cup in 2014 when he was injured in the last preparatory match.
The previous World Cup Germany was desperate. They finished last in the group and so went home much earlier than expected. Low will try to win a trophy in his last competition and thus add another trophy to the World Cup. It will not be easy for him, but given the strength and mentality of Germany, there are chances for such a scenario
