Reus snubbed Bayern because 'Dortmund are better'
Midfielder Marco Reus says he chose Borussia Dortmund over Bayern Munich because he believes the Borussians are better than the Bavarians.
The Borussia Monchengladbach star has signed a deal to join the Bundesliga champions in the off-season after being linked with a move to rivals Bayern.
Reus has netted double figures in each of his last two seasons with Die Fohlen and is highly rated in Europe.
Reports from Munich say he rejected a move to the Allianz Arena out of fear he would not play regularly, but the Germany international has since responded to the claims.
He told PA Sport: "If they want to think that, then let them think it - it does not bother me.
"I decided this way because I feel there is more potential (in Dortmund) for playing in Europe and measuring myself against the best.
"In my eyes, Dortmund are the better club."
The 22-year-old also feels his upcoming transfer will not affect any of the remaining 17 matches he plays for his current club this term.
He added: "I know how to keep things apart. The issue has never influenced my performances.
"I have been treated perfectly normally by them at our training camp here.
"It is good for Gladbach that they now have a few months to prepare and hold talks with new players, and it is good that they have a few more million (euros) too."
