Bremen – Werder Bremen’s sporting director Clemens Fritz has denied any interest in Wolfsburg’s Max Kruse returning.
“It is undisputed that he would do us good with his quality. But I don’t know anything, whether something is planned, nor is it an issue for us,” said the ex-national player in a media round. The offensive player has lost his regular place under the new VfL coach Niko Kovac and has been substituted on twice so far.
In the football talk show “Sky90” Fritz said that he thinks it is possible for the ex-Bremer to leave Wolfsburg early. The reason given by Werder’s honorary captain was the new VfL coaching team. He believes that Kovac is “pulling the reins” – and that Kruse, known as a free spirit, could have his problems with it: “He needs his long leash.”
Kruse played for Werder in youth and during the successful three years from 2016 to 2019.
