Ex-national player Max Kruse, who was sidelined at VfL Wolfsburg, only took part in part of the Lower Saxony team training four days after being ousted.
The 34-year-old only completed a joint warm-up and stabilization program with his colleagues on Tuesday, between these two units he was busy with goal-shooting exercises with the reserve goalkeepers.
VfL trainer Niko Kovac had informed Kruse last week that he would no longer play a game for the north Germans. The professional, whose contract in Wolfsburg runs until the end of the season, would give “no impulses”, a “constructive cooperation” would not come from him, the coach justified his decision, which was coordinated with the sporting management.
Changing the attacking midfielder at short notice is no longer possible in Europe this year. The most likely solution to the current situation is a termination of the contract during the Bundesliga break, which begins in mid-November due to the World Cup in Qatar.
“We will regulate that, but not on the market place,” said sports director Jörg Schmadtke table football. A move to Inter Miami in the North American Major League Soccer (MLS) in the new year seems conceivable. Kruse’s son Lauro Maxim has lived in Florida for several years.
