Discarded Wolfsburg

    Ex-national player Max Kruse, who was sorted out at VfL Wolfsburg, wants to focus on football again after a few off-field actions. “Now the full attack is back on football,” said Kruse on Sunday via “Instagram”. “I want to be able to train properly again as soon as possible, I want to be fit again as soon as possible. Because my career is definitely not over yet.”

    The 34-year-old has been out for weeks with a torn muscle fiber and has recently made headlines for his participation in a poker tournament and other activities off the field. The striker reported extensively on all these activities on social media. “I think it’s clear that it wasn’t an easy time for me either,” said Kruse. “I can only say this much: the time was definitely good for me, I was able to distract myself a bit, I was able to relax.”

    Now Kruse is about to return to the training ground. “I had an MRI on Friday, the structures have healed, everything looks very, very good,” said the offensive man. In the coming week he wants to work with the rehabilitation trainer in Wolfsburg. It remains to be seen whether he will actually be there at the start of training in Wolfsburg on December 1st.

    VfL Wolfsburg’s Max Kruse: Future in Major League Soccer?

    VfL, where coach Niko Kovac no longer has a use for Kruse, would like to get rid of the striker in winter, despite the contract that runs until summer 2023. However, there are still no concrete interested parties. “Where and how and whatever happens, I have no idea,” said Kruse, who is said to be able to imagine Major League Soccer in the future. Steven Cherundolo, coach of the champions Los Angeles FC, recently made it clear in a “Bild” interview that the veteran is out of reach for his club: “Max is not an issue for LAFC in this transfer window. It’s not feasible.”
