Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski sends injured Marco Reus heartfelt message on Facebook [Screenshot]

Borussia Dortmund and Germany star Marco Reus was cruelly ruled out of the Brazil World Cup last night, after tearing ligaments in his ankle in their final friendly against Armenia.

Germany teammate, and Arsenal star, Lukas Podolski took to Facebook to send Marco Reus a lovely message.

Podolski wrote that his son is upset as Reus is his favourite player and assured him that Germany would do their best in his absence.

In truth, the injury to Reus is good news for Podolski, who may have just earned himself a place in the starting XI.
