Irreplaceable Kruse at home in Wolfsburg

There was understandable concern in VfL Wolfsburg circles that the goals might dry up following the departure of Kevin De Bruyne, but Max Kruse has appeased the doubters.

The 27-year-old forward has slotted in seamlessly at the Volkswagen Arena following his summer transfer from Borussia Mönchengladbach, scoring seven goals and registering as many assists in 16 appearances in all competitions in 2015/16.
