Max Kruse has been making headlines for a few weeks now. It rarely has anything to do with his football achievements. Kruse has been suspended from his employer VfL Wolfsburg and is taking advantage of his newfound free time.

The 34-year-old has really come into his own in poker. At the “World Series of Poker Europe” tournament in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, the attacker won prize money in the low six-figure range on Wednesday. They talk about 130,000 francs.

“A rollercoaster of emotions,” Kruse wrote on Instagram, jubilantly appearing in front of a poker table. The Wolfsburg player also announced that he would like to participate in another tournament in the near future. The offensive player is currently unable to train after tearing a muscle fiber with Lower Saxony.

However, coach Niko Kovac no longer relies on him. In the winter, Kruse should leave the club if there is a suitable offer. It is not clear where the attacker will go. A transfer to the American MLS is always a problem and several teams from the USA are said to have shown interest.
