‘Rolls Reus’ fined Sh60.22m for driving offence

REUS-INJUREDBERLIN, December 18- German international Marco Reus has been slapped with a record €540,000 ($665,000, Sh60,220,895.15) fine for driving without a licence, the daily Bild reported Thursday.

“Today I know it: I was much too naive in this situation, it was a stupidity I have learned from,” said the 25-year-old.

“I’ve learned my lesson it will never happen again.”

According to Bild, the fine is a record in Germany for such an offence.

The Borussia Dortmund player who is currently out with a right ankle injury was stopped by police on March 18 behind the wheel of a luxury car as he returned from training.

He failed to present his licence to police who later discovered that he did not possess one and he had been stopped five time perviously between September 2011 and March 2014.

Each time Reus picked up a fine without anyone checking his licence.

The fine was calculated in proportion to his revenue which the court estimated at 180,000 euros ($221,000) a month.

Reus has only played 11 games this season but is expected to return from injury in January.
