When the 31-year-old revealed that he didn't want to extend his contract with Werder, he said that a deciding factor was that 'The Green-Whites' won't be playing in Europe next season. But neither will his new club, Fenerbahce, who ended up sixth in the Turkish Süper Lig last season.
Therefore, critical voices have been raised about Kruse's move to Turkey, with some people claiming that the striker's decision was only based by money. But Kruse denies the allegations.
"If that was the case, I would have been in China now. Leaving Bremen was not a decision against Werder, but a decision for myself," Kruse told Kicker and added:
"I don't really care what many people think. I certainly had the chance to choose a team that will play in Europe next season. But for me, there were other factors to consider as well."
Kruse signed a three-year deal with Fenerbahce.
