Berlin (dpa) – There is no legal obstacle to Max Kruse’s league debut for 1. FC Union Berlin. The 32-year-old tweeted that he was eligible to play after moving from Fenerbahce Istanbul to The Iron.
“From the DFL (German Football League) to Union Berlin and I – let’s go, you Max,” the ex-national player, still suffering from the consequences of an ankle injury, wrote in the short message service accompanying a photo of the message. . He was already presented on August 7 as a new addition to the Berlin Bundesliga club.
