DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Injury-plagued Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus says he would give away everything to be fit again.

Reus, who hasn’t played since sustaining a tear to the posterior cruciate ligament in the German Cup final last May, tells GQ magazine “money is not the only thing for me, but health means much more.”

Reus says he cried at halftime after sustaining the injury, “because it was so bitter,” and again, “two or three days later, when I let everything pass.”

The 28-year-old Reus is not expected to return to action until March.

Reus missed Germany’s World Cup triumph in 2014 with an ankle injury sustained in a warm-up game, while a groin injury ruled him out of the 2016 European Championship.
