Max Kruse switched to Union in the summer. This was preceded by a dispute with his ex-club Fenerbahçe about not paying salary. Now the striker has apparently been given rights.
In the summer, Union Berlin announced the transfer of Max Kruse. The striker came on a free transfer to the Iron, having previously played for Fenerbahçe Istanbul. But the relationship between the traditional Turkish club and the player was broken.
The reason for this was alleged salary payments that Kruse should never have received. It was reportedly about 7.5 million euros. However, the Turkish club also filed a lawsuit with Fifa and demanded compensation of 18 million euros.
Suspected populist purposes
Now, according to information from the “kicker”, the legal dispute in favor of the goalscorer has failed. Fenerbahçe’s claim for damages was therefore not legal because the transfer went well. “Fener” provided the documents and did not block the move. Therefore, according to “Kicker” there is a suspicion in the audience that the lawsuit mainly served populist purposes.
Kruse is currently missing from Union due to a torn muscle bundle. By the time he was injured, the forward had already scored six goals and provided five assists.
