Toni Kroos Controversy

Toni Kroos Controversy

Toni Kroos termed Mesut Ozil’s claim of racism and disrespectful baseless and ‘nonsense’. He also claimed that Ozil’s decision to retire was “not in order”, accusing the midfielder “knowing very well that racism within the national team and the [German Football Federation] does not exist”.

Basically Mesut is a deserved international and as a player he deserved a better departure,” Kroos told Bild newspaper. “But the way he resigned was not in order.

Kroos also made remarks on teammate and Manchester City winger Leroy Sane. He questioned his body language and intent, stating, “sometimes you have the feeling with Leroy’s body language that it is all the same whether we win or lose. He has to improve his body language. He’s a player who has everything you need to be a world-class player but sometimes you have to tell him he has to perform better.”
