All the great Real Madrid players have been booed in their stadium but only the real greats they win over the public ‘, “says Kroos. “His main advantage is that he has had experience here as a player and you believe in what he tells you. He has helped out the group and has a great aura around him,” he said of his coach.

Precisely at Real Madrid players must support you. Everyone needs to feel valued and part of it and that does not it’s easy because some play more than others but he does it extremely well, “he said.
The memory of Guardiola
Another coach who scored Kroos was Guardiola, with whom he agreed a year in the Bayern and with whom he meets again on Wednesday: “If you ask Bayern players today they will tell you that he is the best coach they have ever had in the sports sense.

Pep tried to renew and still talk to him: “I could have renewed my contract with Bayern, although I don’t think it would have been a good idea to sign a new contract for the coach. Pep wanted to renew me for five years but what if he did he leave before? He went to Manchester City two years later but we are still in touch and we get along very well. I will never forget everything I learned from him, “Kroos said.
Liverpool and United interest

The funny thing was that Suarez was about to leave for Barcelona,” he said of the network interest.

Louis wanted time to build his own project. I didn’t hear anything about United for a while and I started having doubts. Then the World Cup started and Carlo Ancelotti called me. That was all, “he concluded.
