Smeltz eyes move back ‘home’

Smeltz currently plays for Gold Coast United in the Australian A-League however he would love a chance to play in the Bundesliga.

“I unfortunately don’t speak any German, my parents moved over to New Zealand when I was just one-year-old and I have never been back to Germany since then,” he told Sportinformationsdienst.

“I hope I am someday going to be back in this great country I was born in.

“It would certainly be a dream coming true to appear in the Bundesliga, I am a keen follower of the league via TV.

“The supporters as much as the atmosphere in the Bundesliga stadiums are incredible!”
