KRUSE: I’M READY TO EXPLODE

In 2013-14 Kruse was flying after his transfer to Bayer Leverkusen, having already established himself as a Socceroos gun.

He became a regular for one of the biggest club’s in one of the world’s top three leagues, before disaster struck.

He tore his anterior cruciate ligament last January, ruling him out of the 2014 World Cup.

But the reformed Kruse conducted a militant rehab with his sights set on the 2015 Asian Cup.

Kruse, who will marry long-time girlfriend Tiharny (another stabilising influence) in June, said those who haven’t seen him in years wouldn’t recognise him.

“Now if anyone hangs around with me for a few days they’ll see that I’m very strict with everything I do,’’ he said. “Sometimes you don’t feel established at a place and I definitely felt that at Melbourne, they took me in, the fans loved me and if I come back to the A-League I’d only play for Victory.’’
