Christopher Lenz of Eintracht Frankfurt told by a crazy experience with his former teammate Max Kruse from Union Berlin together with Union.
How Lenz revealed the Sport picture, the striker had before the 3-1 victory of the Irishes at the TSG Hoffenheim at the beginning of November 2020 at lunch “felt a million Nutella rolls pure”. Nevertheless, Kruse had led his team to success with three direct gate participations.
“With the stomach, no other player would run two kilometers at all,” said Lenz and admired that Kruse scored a goal, two more prepared and so the game decided. “These are memories that stay,” the left-part explained and pushed to: “He said at the meal table with a wink to the young players: ‘Do not look at that with me. What I can, can not everyone.'”
Together with Kruse he had played a year in the capital before Lenz moved to Frankfurt. Kruse remained half a year for another year and has been under contract since this winter at VfL Wolfsburg.
A logical step, so Lenz: “For me it was surprising, but for him it was probably the best thing he could do. Max is not 23 more, I understand him if he signs a great deal.” Kruse had established his change afterwards with the financial aspect and discrepancies with coach Urs Fischer.

According to Lenz, game types like Kruse are important for a team. “You always need guys like him who are a bit crazy and always have a good mood, even if it felt in winter, there is no sunshine for 16 weeks,” he said and added: “Extroverted players pull their players high, if they are on the ground are. If everyone would be the same, it would be very boring in the cabin, and no team spirit would develop. “
