Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer hit back at comments made by Max Kruse after the forward revealed that he grew increasingly dissatisfied before leaving the club for Wolfsburg last month.
Following his switch to Wolfsburg last month, Max Kruse has revealed that his relationship with Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer grew stained during their time together, particularly during this season.
Speaking to DAZN on Sunday, Fischer responded to Kruse’s statements, saying:
“This is the Bundesliga, paid football is not a petting zoo. I think it was mostly about the minutes, about his substitutions.
“I don’t have the job of fulfilling wishes. That’s how it is, so I can accept that he wasn’t happy with a few of my decisions.”
Wolfsburg triggered a €5 million release clause in Kruse’s contract to sign him from Union.
