Real Madrid Pay Tribute To Toni Kroos As He Retires From Football

La Liga champions Real Madrid paid tribute to Toni Kroos after the German announced his retirement from football last week Tuesday.

Real Madrid finished the league season with a 0-0 draw at home against Real Betis over the weekend. The result was not important, as they were already crowned champions of La Liga.

There were unforgettable scenes in Madrid.

“The Bernabeu has given him the farewell he deserves. It was a great night — very emotional for him and for everyone,” said his manager Carlo Ancelotti at a press conference. 

“We are lucky to enjoy another week with him. He was one of the greatest, obviously.”

“I really enjoyed these 85 minutes,” Kroos, 34, summed up after the game.

“I was quite strong until the moment I saw my children, who killed me.”

Kroos’s team-mate Aurelien Tchouameni was one of those who comforted the German’s daughter.

The whole day was about saying goodbye to a club legend. In every direction outside the Bernabeu, there were Real shirts bearing his name and banners paying tribute to Kroos.

His name was read out last when the starting XI was announced, a place normally reserved for the team’s star player, Vinicius Junior. All the stands were shouting, “Kroos!”

After he final whistle, the crowd rose to their feet to applaud as Kroos was surrounded by his team-mates while handing the armband to his mate Modric.

On reaching the bench, he embraced every member of staff and his teammates. The assistant coach Davide Ancelotti, son of Carlo, was in tears.

All eyes went to the video screen, where Kroos was shown embracing his children.
