Germany’s Reus leaves Confed Cup place open

Berlin (AFP) – Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus is the latest Germany star poised to miss the Conferderations Cup in Russia after leaving his place open at the World Cup warm-up tournament.

“I will certainly speak with the national head coach (Joachim Loew) again and weigh up what is best for me,” said Reus after scoring in Dortmund’s 2-1 win over Hoffenheim on Saturday.

“But I have not had a vacation in the last two years because I was always busy with rehab.”

Loew will name the Germany squad for the Confederations Cup on May 17.

The injury-prone Reus sat out the 2014 World Cup with torn ankle ligaments and missed a place with die Mannschaft in France at Euro 2014 with a pelvis injury.

He was ruled out from February to April with a torn hamstring.

Reus is the latest Germany star set to miss the Confederations Cup with World Cup winners Mario Goetze and Benedikt Hoewedes already sidelined by injury or illness.

Loew has said he will use the tournament to blood fringe players as several first-choice names are set to be left to rest at home a year out before Germany’s defence of the 2014 World Cup title.

Germany have drawn Australia, Cameroon and Chile in Group B at the World Cup warm-up from June 17-July 2.
