He is one of the few players to have appeared in every edition of the game since the first Pro Evolution Soccer.
 Pre PES 2009
In the earlier games he was one of of the best all round midfielders due to the fact he is both good at ball winning and playmaking. His long range shooting and heading ability made him very dangerous in an attacking sense however this has been toned down in later versions of the game.
 PES 2009
He has reached his peak and is on the decline. He does, however, remain as one of the best midfielders in the game though his age makes him a limited buy in Master League.
 PES 2010
He has the playstyle card Long Ranger which means he is able to shot from distance more accurately and possibly score more goals.
 PES 2011
Because he missed the World Cup due to injury and his club doesn't feature the game, he only appears in the PES Shop as Kruger, as he was called for the German national team when they were unlicensed. Being unlicensed he hasn' t his Preset face.
