Toni Kroos was asked about the quality of Haaland and Mbappé and admitted that both are excellent, but that they cannot help Real Madrid in Wednesday’s match against Atalanta, in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.
«Haaland and Mbappé are two good players and can help any team. The problem is that tomorrow they will not help me. I am focused on my game and that is not my business. It is a question for Florentino (president of Real Madrid) », said the German midfielder, in a press conference.
Toni Kroos also addressed the match with Atalanta and assumed that it will be a complicated challenge.
«We want to make a game where we control. This is what we want. We have to have the ball. We face a team that plays in a different way and it will be necessary to adapt, but always trying to play our game. They are the eighth away team and it will be difficult. We will try to play our game. »
