Toni Kroos Is The Target Of A German Legend

Toni Kroos has been targeted by Lothar Matthaus, weeks after Germany’s Euro 2020 exit.
The Real Madrid player, according to the German great, was one of the reasons why his team failed to deliver at the Euros.
In the Round of 16 at Wembley Stadium, Germany was defeated 2-0 by England.
In the 75th minute, England’s Raheem Sterling scored the game’s first goal.
Thomas Muller of Bayern Munich had a one-on-one opportunity to equalize for Germany, but he missed it.
Soon after, Harry Kane seized the opportunity and aided England’s progress.
Lothar Matthaus claimed Kroos no longer had the ability to excel in international football in an interview with Kicker [via Mundo Deportivo].
“Kroos is no longer a world-class brand.”
“I have nothing against Kroos personally, but I disagree with his style of play,” Matthaus stated.
“You saw at the Euros that it’s not just about the player’s speed, but also the ball’s.”
He can do it with one or two touches, but when he passes the ball, he loses speed again since there isn’t much space gained, and his pace is taken away.” Also read: Fabrizio Romano’s Transfer Roundup: Manchester United pushing for two more deals, Barcelona’s intentions for Lionel Messi, and more.
Lothar Matthaus is not the only German to criticize Toni Kroos, according to Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.
Uli Hoeness, the president of Bayern Munich, took aim at Kroos earlier this month, stating he has no place in modern-day sport.
“I admire Kroos, he’s shown world-class performances in the past, but his manner of playing is utterly done,” says England coach Gareth Southgate.
He is no longer relevant in today’s sport.
In the last quarter of an hour, we were 1-0 down to England, and Kroos had not yet reached the halfway line.
Toni Kroos confirmed his retirement from international football following Germany’s loss from the Euro 2020 tournament.
He appeared in 106 games for Germany, scoring 17 goals.
