Max Kruse lets Union Berlin dream of Europe

Max Ruse shoots Union Berlin on a Champions League Square – and at the age of action.

When Max Ruse looked after the double pack against his ex-club on the table, the Goal Hunter of Union Berlin almost burst proudly. Except for fourth place the Köpenick were pretended, suddenly the Champions League beckons. If you see the development at Union, you have to say: It’s outstanding what we have done here, said the 33-year-old after 2: 1 (1: 1) at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Ruse himself had a decisive proportion with his transformed trade meter (18th) and the winner of the end (84th). Until 2015, he was still playing for Russia, now he met for the first time since his farewell to the old facility. It was his desire to shoot a goal here, that two are two – all the more beautiful, Trainer said Urs Fischer.

Ruse himself hugged after closing whistle Playback’s final man Yann Summer, with whom he had started together for Playback, and almost excused.

He had only done his job. At the moment we just have a run, and that’s what draws us. The chances we have, we make us pure, said the Match winner.

Ruse had annoyed his ex-club last year: his hit in the last minute of the last match day, Union carried in the European Cup – and Russia out of that. We know what we have at Max. He is a very intelligent player, the spaces perceives like no other, Fischer said.

Age plays no role for Ruse

So rosy times for the Berliner – and for Ruse. Whether he will be better and better like a wine in the age, he was still in demand. The clear answer: Either one is a good player or one is none – whether one is 40 or 18, does not matter.
