Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has admitted that he has fears over what will come next after he decides to hang up his boots.

Marco Reus is one of Borussia Dortmund's greatest players of all time, and continues to be a difference maker on the pitch even at the age of 34. The forward is closing in on the record of being the Black and Yellows' leading goalscorer of all time, and is 11 goals shy of Adi Preißler.

While he has no plans to retire just yet, Reus commented on the end of his career as one of his biggest fears during the first episode of the newly launched Unspoken show on YouTube.

When asked what he is afraid of, Reus said, "This prospect of falling into a deep hole after the end of my playing career. On an emotional level, but also not knowing one hundred percent: What comes next? I'm the most impatient person in the world. I always have to be on my toes. I'm really looking forward to training starting again on Monday."

"I'm used to having a structured plan: When is training? What's the schedule? At some point, that will no longer exist," Reus said.

Marco Reus has made a total of 409 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, scoring 166 goals and assisting a further 124. The former club captain signed a contract extension with BVB in April, but his current deal will expire at the end of the season. A decision on his future beyond the end of the current campaign will likely be made in the coming months.
