Toni Kroos is a worldwide figure. At Real Madrid He has established himself in the elite as one of the best midfielders in the world, being also key in the germany selection. Before coming to the white club, he played for Bayern MunichBut his career could have been very different.
The Werder Bremen tried to convince Kroos. Rather it was Klaus Allofs, formerly of the German team, as he has confessed now on the podcast Phrasenmäher from the German newspaper Bild. With Allofs at the controls, Werder won the Bundesliga in 2004 and thus tried to seduce the now Madrid player two years later.
“We loved Toni, but in the end we had to be satisfied with his brother Felix,” Klaus Allofs commented on the podcast. “We tried, but there was no way. He had already given Bayern his word,” he continued. In those times, Toni Kroos began to stand out in the quarry of the Hansa Rostock, but Bayern Munich He went ahead to Werder Bremen to incorporate him into his lower categories.
Far from lowering his arms, the former manager continued trying to tempt Kroos, despite the fact that he was already part of Bayern Munich: “He is a great fan of Bremen, especially Johan Micoud. We hoped that, perhaps, the things at Bayern and, in that case, he would accept our offer. But it didn’t happen. “
Toni Kroos himself has spoken on this subject publicly: “I thought about it a lot. I had an offer from my club, Werder Bremen, which was not far from Greifswald, my hometown. In the end I ruled it out. I thought that I had to find my way by myself. ” That path ended up leading him to the Santiago Bernabeu.
