Marco Reus has taken to Twitter to congratulate his Germany team-mates on their World Cup final triumph.

Reus, who has been heavily linked with a big-money move to Liverpool in recent days, was forced to miss Germany’s World Cup campaign after picking up an ankle injury in a warm-up game ahead of the tournament.

However, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder refused to wallow in self-pity after being denied his Brazil dream, taking to social media to hail Germany’s 1-0 win against Argentina in the final on Sunday.

And 25-year-old Rues reserved special praise for his former Dortmund team-mate Mario Gotze, who scored the winning goal in the 113th minute in Rio.

Liverpool have been linked with a big-money move for Reus after selling Luis Suarez to Barcelona in a £75m deal on Friday.

Reus has scored 30 goals in 62 Bundesliga appearances since moving to Dortmund from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012.
