Max Kruse nearing return from injury

Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer is hoping that Max Kruse will be fit enough to make the squad for Sunday's Bundesliga game against Freiburg.
Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer has provided a fitness update on Max Kruse, who hasn't been in action since December due to a muscle injury.

The 32-year-old is back in parts of team training and might be fit enough to make the squad for Sunday's Bundesliga clash with Freiburg.

"It's possible that he can be an option for the Freiburg game," Fischer told Kicker.

"Max is working well and is trying all he can. I hope that we will take another step forward in the coming week."

The 32-year-old scored six goals and provided five assists in his first 10 games for Union Berlin before picking up the injury.
