Kruse has struck five times in the Bundesliga this season and to celebrate he usually runs towards the corner flag with his arms outstretched “That’s nothing special,” he said in the video below (in German only). “Most of the time I’m just greeting my family.” Now he is asking fans to “be creative and come up with something special, regardless of whether it’s by yourself or with a group of friends".
