'Reus Deserves More Respect Than Messi & Ronaldo'

Injury-prone Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus recently returned to action in Germany, and one of the club's former bosses believes he perhaps deserves more respect than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo: I Would Be Happy If I Retired Now

The 28-year-old returned to football in January after being out since May 2017, missing a total of 27 games for BVB.

Matthias Sammer, a former manager of the club, has hailed Reus' ability to keep getting up after being knocked down.

"I'm absolutely convinced by Marco and I have much more respect for him due to the situations that he has lived through," he told Kicker.

"If you take Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo now, who have had few injuries and played football for a decade at almost God-given levels, that is certainly wonderful and has my respect.

"But I think those situations that Marco went through are lessons for life. He is a true role model for many.

"Not giving up, continuing, surviving difficult phases, stabilising to continue living, showing motivation for the profession – that is Marco Reus."

Reus has played just five games for Dortmund so far this season, scoring two goals along the way.

Do you think Reus could have become one of the world's best players if it weren't for injuries? Let us know in the comments section below.
