Injury-Prone Star: I Would Give All My Money To Play Again

An injury-prone superstar has admitted he would give away all the money he has made just to be healthy and playing football regularly again.

Reports: Bayern Contact Former Barca Boss

Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, who is currently sidelined after tearing a cruciate ligament in his knee, has had an injury-stricken four years, during which he missed out on the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 European Championship.

In an exclusive interview with GQ Magazine, the Germany international opened up about the knee injury he sustained against Eintracht Frankfurt in May, and the emotional toll all the setbacks have had on him.

"The tears came again two or three days later when I went through it again in my mind," Reus told GQ.

"To be alone, working your way back is the most demanding part. I was really fed up after three weeks. It's a brutal mental test because you always have to work on your own.

"As top players, we earn a lot of money, but sometimes we pay a hefty price with our health.

"I would give away all the money to be healthy again, to be able to do my job. To do what I love: to play football."

Reports: Ex-Bayern Boss Set For Shock Return

The 28-year-old has made 189 appearances for BVB so far, scoring 89 goals and assisting a further 6 strikes.
