'Only Messi & CR7 Immune To Setbacks'

Marco Reus believes that the injuries that have beset his career in recent years are part of the ups and downs suffered by every footballer - except for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Normally during a career, it's not just going up, except maybe Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but stagnation or even setbacks are also included," he explained to Goal.

"Then it is important to realise that it is the way it is - no problem. Injuries just belong to a footballer career. What others make of it is their thing, but it is very important that you are stable in your mind."

"You should not just say: I have to enjoy football now, you should really enjoy football."
