Toni Kroos (30) is always looking forward to guest appearances in Germany. Before that in Mönchengladbach, the Real Madrid driver commented on Borussia and ex-club Bayern Munich.
After two defeats in a row (0: 1 against newly promoted Cadiz in the league, 2: 3 against Schachtar in the premier class) Real came back on track for success in time for the important second group game of the Champions League in Mönchengladbach. The 3-1 win against Barcelona in the Clasico put out the threat of fire around Real.
But the bankruptcy against Donetsk has undoubtedly increased the pressure on Los Blancos. Kroos is also aware of this and made it clear at the press conference in Borussia Park on Monday: "We know the importance of the game. We already have pressure to win tomorrow." Before answering the question of whether Zinedine Zidane had brought the team behind him through the Clasico success, Kroos only smiled. "None of us ever doubted him," said the 2014 world champion.

Although Kroos "always" likes to come back to Germany, he continues to enjoy life in Madrid and as a Real professional to the full. Since signing with Blancos, Kroos has "never spoken to anyone else". The midfield driver can still see himself ending his career in royal white.

The defeats against Cadiz and Donetsk were not due to a motivation problem. Nevertheless, in the future it will be important to focus even more on the task ahead. "We saw last year that you actually win the championship with wins against the supposedly little ones," said Kroos, referring to the 2019/20 season.
Before Gladbach, which wants to emulate Donetsk on Tuesday, Kroos already warned his colleagues expressly, according to his own statement. "I think they developed very well. Marco Rose also made a good impression as a coach," said the midfielder, who was born in Greifswald, but also said on record: "I'm not afraid in football Strength." But there is no question "a little something going on" for Real on Tuesday.

"I want to win at least one more Champions League title." - Toni Kroos
In addition to Gladbach, Kroos also commented on his ex-club Bayern Munich. The German record champions are "without a doubt the best team in the world" with a view to the last few months, the results and the style of play. Real had such a phase between 2016 and 2018, but now "one has to acknowledge" that Bayern are a step ahead. "It is clear that you cannot stand there for ten years," said Kroos. He himself wants to leave the European competition behind in the medium term: "I want to win at least one more Champions League title." A win in Gladbach would be a first step towards reaching this goal as early as 2020/21.
