Soccer player Max Cruz dreams of America – his wife Dilara is skeptical about the change

A common future in America?
Cruise’s dream transformation will make Frau happy

Former national striker Max Kroos will not feature in the Bundesliga for the time being, at least not as a player. Cruz also has completely different ambitions: he wants to work remotely. But there is a problem.

Max Kroos, currently without a club, has confirmed his desire to move to the United States. “I don’t know if it’s forever, but I love America as a country, I love the mentality,” the 34-year-old former international said in a video interview with YouTuber Leeroy Matata. “My English is really good, really good. I can understand myself, it’s gotten better over the years. It wasn’t good at school,” Cruz added.

The attacker has long been linked with a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) in North America, as his 11-year-old son lives in Florida. “If you’re in America every year, sometimes six weeks. Sometimes you learn that,” Cruz said.

“Max can be one of the superstars”

His wife, Dilara Cruz, said in the video that she likes where she currently lives in Berlin and doesn’t want to move to America. “Not that far yet. He knows I’ll come with him, but will I be happy? Well, I don’t want to, but I have to, he’s my husband,” she said. It is conceivable that Max Kruse lived in both places. “I can imagine traveling very well, but sharing my apartment. So half in America, half here,” she said.

Former Bundesliga player Steven Cerundolo had already praised the striker’s skills, who retired in the autumn. “A player with such qualities should be a problem for every team. A problem for LAFC as well,” said the coach of American soccer’s first division club Los Angeles FC and former Hannover 96 expert of “Bild am Sonntag”. The 43-year-old coaches former players Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini. Cruise can play a major role in America, at least Lutz Pfannenstiel believes so, and it will be well received by the public. “Max can become one of America’s superstars,” the German sporting director of MLS club St. Louis City SC told the “Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung” in August.

The retired striker mutually terminated his contract with his former club VfL Wolfsburg in November. In early September, Kroos was sidelined by coach Niko Kovac and has not played for Wolves since. VfL officials accused him of a lack of professionalism and thus a bad influence on the rest of the team. As for the game, Kroos’ absence at Wolfsburg has not been noticed in the last few games. After a bumpy start to the season, the club settled under Kovac and won five of their last eight Bundesliga games.
