First reunion with “Schleicher” Max Kruse

On Thursday, the 1st FC Union Berlin was on the program for the entire team regeneration. Two days after moving into the semi-finals of the DFB Cup against the second division FC St. Pauli (2: 1) still after and after the next Bundesliga game on Saturday (15.30, live! At Wolfsburg) at the VfL Wolfsburg in the viewpoint.

The confluence of the table-twisted Wolfsburg against the seven-placed Köpenicker does not sound like a briller. But the Personalie Max Kruse gives this game a lot of whistle. For the first time since its last minute change from Union to Wolfsburg at the end of January, Kruse will dulate with his ex-colleagues.

Fisherman relies on the press conference on Max Kruse

Kruse has not made friends at Union with his primarily financially motivated finish. In addition, he complained about too little playing time. This has probably made coach Urs Fischer more than he likes to admit.

On Thursday at the press conference, however, Fischer behaved in this regard. “To the topic was enough told and said. I will not comment on that. It is important to accept the task and the way of playing Wolfsburg. Max is part of this style,” said Fischer. “We know what to expect us. We know Max. But we focus on the game, not again with max.”

Max is a bit of such a deletion for me, who always moves somewhere in the rooms and tries that no other.

In the media public Union training, Kruse was never the most diligent. In the 45 competitive games between summer 2020 and January 2022, he usually delivered (19 goals / 12 templates). In this respect, Union will try to narrow Kruses circles. “Max is a bit of such a lanyut for me, who always moves somewhere in the rooms and spaces like no other,” Fischer explained. “This is important to keep in mind. But at the end it’s about the whole. We can not only focus on Kruse. Also Maximilian Arnold is responsible for the balance of Wolfsburg team.”

After the 3-1 victory against the 1st FSV Mainz 05 and the progress against St. Pauli, Union in Wolfsburg could retract the third victory within a week. With then 40 meters, the practically long-reaching class content would also be theoretically secured. This should be an additional incentive to meet and score in the fourth mandatory attempt for the first time in Wolfsburg.

In personnel terms, fishermen should be rotated compared to the cup of cup on Tuesday. Torwart Andreas Luthe is sure instead of Frederik Rönnow in the box. On the right exterior, Julian Ryerson mumbled the crude “hunter” instead of Captain Christopher Trimmel. For the front, Cup victor gut andreas Voglsammer may be ahead for Taiwo Awoniyi ran. Only the midfield actors Keita Endo and Andras Schäfer (both knee injury) are struck.
