Adam Taggart is one of the most in-form Australians going about their business right now.
And he’s expecting massive things from Robbie Kruse next season at Melbourne Victory.
Kruse, 30, returned to the Hyundai A-League club where he made his name last week after an eight-year tenure in Germany.

LETHAL RECORD: The surprise goal stat that has Kruse among Victory legends
The 75-times capped Caltex Socceroo arrived back in Melbourne as the club’s first signing under new boss Marco Kurz.
Moreover, the Queensland-born attacker is sure to excite fans around the country – and those living abroad too, including fellow Australian international Taggart, who has scored 13 times in 20 K-League games for Suwon Bluewings after leaving Brisbane Roar in February.
“I think it will be a really interesting year, especially having some good players in the Socceroos come back,” Taggart exclusively told www.socceroos.com.au.
“Especially Robbie Kruse, because he’s such a top player and has played at a such a high level for a long time.
“He’s a massive positive for the league because he’s still at a really good age. I’ll be looking forward to seeing how he does back in Melbourne.”
Kruse is set to make his first appearance for Victory since signing his deal in next Wednesday night's FFA Cup 2019 Round of 32 clash against Newcastle Jets.
The match, which will be played at AAMI Park, kicks off at 7.30pm (AEST).
