If some return from Tokyo with a medal, Max Kruse will return to Germany with a light heart. After the victory of Germany against Saudi Arabia (3-2), for their second group match, the captain of the Mannschaft, decisive passer on Monday, took the opportunity to ask his girlfriend to marry him live from German television. One of the most beautiful moments since the start of these Games.
The Union Berlin striker made his request during his post-match interview with German broadcaster ARD. Asked about the quality of his performance, the German striker first played the journalists’ game before taking the microphone and removing his jersey. As he kneeled down, his black t-shirt appeared, stylized with a very specific message in the Kurdish language: “I love you, will you marry me?” “.
Proof that the 33-year-old had everything planned. “I actually wanted to wait to score a goal. But who knows if I can still do it, ”Kruse preferred to smile after his request. No live response, of course, from the person concerned. Max Kruse still confirmed the success of his operation on social networks. “She said yes,” the Mannschaft captain announced on Instagram.
This scene is reminiscent of Raymond Domenech’s proposal to Estelle Denis during Euro 2008. The coach had made his request after the defeat of the Blues against Italy (0-2), synonymous with elimination for The french team. Kruse himself had the delicacy to do so after a victory.
