In the world of not only Spanish football, very few people do not know the legendary Toni Kroos. The German midfielder recently gave an extensive interview in which he talked about several points in his career, but also about the English Premier League. The 32-year-old footballer pointed out that no team from the islands won a European trophy last season.
The star of the White Ballet also mentioned that it is the teams from Germany and Spain that can keep up with the English. And this despite the high financial income of the Premier League. “TV revenue has been the highest in England for years, but English teams are not benefiting from it” said the German midfielder for the website Madrid Universal.
On the other hand, we must add that Liverpool and Manchester City were in the semi-finals of the Champions League, West Ham in the Europa League and Leicester in the European Conference League also appeared at the same stage. No other country had such a good balance sheet. We can find several reasons for the season without a European trophy. Undoubtedly, the main factor remains the high quality of the English competition.
In the interview, the German footballer also spoke about the incredible diligence of Cristiano Ronaldo, who, according to him, spent a lot of effort to transfer to Manchester United. “Look at him, he’s 37 years old,” pointed out the multiple winner of the Champions League about the Portuguese’s great physical equipment. “What you don’t see: What he invests every day to stay that way, to keep improving.”
Ronaldo’s former teammate also stated that he didn’t get to the Red Devils just because of his name, but because of his intelligence and excellent physique. And although he comes more like a substitute in the last matches, he definitely poses a threat to the opponent’s defense.
Toni Kroos has been associated with Real Madrid since 2014. And the connection remains strong even after eight seasons. “It was the best decision for me,” returned the German to leave Bayern Munich. “It was a big step in my professional and personal life,” he added.
In his career, the German midfielder played 369 matches for Real Madrid, in which he scored 25 goals. A much more dangerous attribute has become standard situations, from which the 32-year-old footballer conjures not only accurate shots, but also excellent crosses.
He ended his national team career last year at the age of 31. As the 2014 world champion, he ranks among the biggest legends of the sport that brings joy to people all over the world. And hopefully Toni Kroos will put smiles on the faces of many more regular and new fans.
