The 26-year-old is back in Melbourne as the Socceroos prepare for January’s Asian Cup.

Kruse says he’d love to return to the side were he made a name for himself in the A-League.

“Melbourne’s definitely my favourite place in Australia,” he is quoted as saying by AAP.

“I definitely call it home now and I want to live here when I finish my career.

“I’d love to end it here with Melbourne Victory.”

Ahead of the Socceroos’ opening game against Kuwait, Kruse says he had great memories of playing in front of the Victory fans at AAMI Park.

“I have fond memories of playing at AAMI Park with Victory fans, they’re definitely one of the best in the league,” he said.

“Hopefully we can pack the stadium out (against Kuwait) and create a hostile environment.”
