Borussia Dortmund forward, Marco Reus who is injury-prone has made a vow to play at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The German international has further revealed he has a strong determination to make an impact at next year’s World Cup.
In fact, Reus has spoken out of his effort to return to form and fitness for the greatest football competition.
And that is aftermath of the prolific attacker having now gone through operation after picking up cruciate knee ligament damage.
The Dortmund star player suffered the injury during their 2-1 win against Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB-Pokal final last month.
That was the situation with Reus who had also endured a series of injury problems earlier in the 2016/17 season.
Reus had, meanwhile, also missed out out-rightly on the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil because of an ankle issue.
The winger had to withdraw from the team before his nation went on to become world champions in the process.
But, after going through surgery once again, the 28-year-old Reus is on the comeback trail.
And he has a full concentration on making a quick return to help both his club and Germany next season.
“The surgery went fine and I can say to the world that I am already on the road to recovery.”
Reus made the disclosure in a post which he made on his Facebook and Instagram pages late on Saturday night.
Reus promises to come back strong
“Now there is a relatively long rehab phase which I will follow.
“I will tackle this with everything I have and I will do anything to be back soon on the pitch.
“And as for me, I have always come back strong previously and this will also be the case this time.
“We have lots to do with our new BVB coach, Peter Bosz and with Germany at the Russia World Cup.
“It’s my goal to be in top shape for the crucial stage of next season, fully able to contribute again.
“Thanks for your support, it means much to me and gives me strength for the difficult time that lies ahead.
“Germany coach, Jogi Low and the boys, I wish you great success for the World Cup qualifiers and Confederations Cup.” Reus concluded.
