DID YOU KNOW ?

In September 2007 Max Kruse made his Bundesliga debut at the age of 19. He had to wait three years for his second match in the German topflight league.

As of October 2018, he was the player with the longest active penalty scoring streak - 24 goals. He had not missed a single penalty in six years.

On 18 June 2020, his contract with Turkish side Fenerbahce was terminated due to unpaid wages.

Kruse received his first call up to the senior Germany squad for a friendly against Ecuador on 29 May 2013 in Boca Raton, Florida. He provided the assist for Lukas Podolski's second goal of the match.

In March 2016 Joachim Löw said that he would not consider Kruse for the national team anymore after Kruse made negative headlines.

Kruse is an avid poker player and made it to the final table, finishing third, at the No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball event at the 2014 World Series of Poker on 18 June 2014, taking home $36,494 in prize money.

In March 2016, Kruse was fined £20,000 and warned of his future conduct by Wolfsburg after it was revealed that he had lost £60,000 worth of poker winnings in the back seat of a taxi.

In February 2021, Kruse was one of more than 800 professional footballers, across both the mens' and womens' game, who signed a petition to support gay players.
