The star attacking midfielder of Borussia Dortmund Marco Reus has been fined €54,000 for driving without his driving licence. This is not the first time that Reus is involved in driving offences as the player was previously involved in so many time. This is the fifth time that Marco Reus has been fined for driving without permission card. According to German newspaper Bild, Reus has been charged with total of £427,000 which could create hurdles in his footballing career also.
After this offence, the twenty five year old midfielder said “I decided back then to take that road but the reasons I did it are something I cannot really understand today. Today I know that I was too native and that it was stupid. I have learned my lesson and this will not happen again.” Although he has told what he wanted, but the cops are not satisfied with his statement after his illegal behaviour on the roads.
Later, the prosecutor of Dortmund said that the fine was related to offenses of 2011 until this March. During this incident, no team mate or club member was available.
The spokesman Sascha Fligge told to reporters “He has promised such a thing will not happen again. We see no reason to doubt his words because we hold Marco both as a player and as a person in high regard.”

He was allegedly stopped by cops of Germany several times and has been charged on at least five occasions since 2011. Looks like Reus have not learned a lesson so far, but after reading his last statement and huge amount of fine, it looks like that he have to learn a lesson this time.
Reus is considered as the most targeted transfer for the upcoming winter transfers as the player is on transfer radars of Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and some other European clubs.
