After the next bankruptcy of VfL Wolfsburg, Maximilian Arnold reacted annoyed to the ongoing debate about the expulsion of former national player Max Kruse. “Everyone knows about the qualities of a Max Kruse,” said the captain: “Everyone also knows about the qualities of a Max Kruse that don’t exist.”
Arnold left it open what he meant by that. “It’s just as if VfL Wolfsburg only consisted of Max Kruse,” he said after the 2-0 defeat at Union Berlin. He does not have to judge the decision of coach Niko Kovac. “We should tone down the issue a bit,” demanded the midfielder.
The Croatian suspended the former Unioner and recently demoted him to goalkeeping coach. Kovac is said to be annoyed by the constant media presence and the public discussions that the striker regularly fuels through his social channels.
Ex-Wolfsburg trainer Florian Kohfeldt once noted that Kruse does not always show the greatest discipline in training. “Perhaps from time to time you wish you could train in the direction of a competition,” said the 39-year-old about his protégé at the time.
According to the picture Discussions are to be held in the coming days about a contract termination. Kruse’s working paper runs until the summer of 2023. The first clubs from the USA are said to be interested in the striker.
