Toni Kroos’ Twitter AMA: German talks all things VAR, Real Madrid and Maroon 5

The 28-year-old is among the few to have achieved success for club and country both.

Germany and Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos delighted his fans with a surprise Twitter Q&A on Tuesday and the football superstar fielded questions ranging from VAR to Real Madrid’s chances in the LA Liga this year.

Kroos, who signed for Madrid before Germany’s triumph at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, has won the lot at club level.

With three UEFA Champions League titles and one La Liga crown during his tenure with Los Blancos, it’s safe to assume the trophy cabinet in his mansion will require expansion.

The Q&A got off to a light start, with one user asking what song the 28-year-old can’t get enough of at the moment:

Cristiano Ronaldo, Kroos’ former club teammate, has had a movie on his life released and it appears the German will be following in the Portuguese’s steps soon:

Many experts have claimed Ronaldo’s shock departure to Juventus has weakened the capital outfit, but the unflappable Kroos remains confident that they can go all the way in the La Liga this season:

Footballers at the very highest level are multi-millionaires and can have anything they want, but it appears that Kroos has a deceptively simple wish for the years to come:

It appears Ronaldo’s mansion in Madrid still lies vacant, so if you’ve got a few million handy, call your broker:

The central midfielder is known to score a belter or two, but clearly prefers to win as a team more than as an individual:

Kroos is a massive Roger Federer fan and perhaps that’s why he was a bit miffed when asked who the greatest sportsman of all time is:

The legendary Swiss was sent packing from Flushing Meadows in the pre-quarters by the unheralded John Millman.

Federer is nearing 40, but Kroos is firmly of the belief that he’s still got one more Slam left in him:

Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric have been named as the contenders for the FIFA Best Men’s Player Award, but the German was unimpressed by the trio:

Considering he’s been plying his trade for Los Blancos since the 2014/15 season, Kroos speaks fluent Spanish but still thinks he can improve:

Video Assistant Refere (VAR) was used for the first time at the FIFA World Cup this summer and it appears Kroos is a fan of the new technology:

Uruguayan Fede Valverde has been impressing in training for Madrid and Kroos has tipped the youngster for big things in the future:

And the last question of the session was an important one, with Kroos revealing he was never in doubt over his ability to make it to the very top:

Madrid have made a strong start to the 2018/19 season, winning all three of their La Liga games to be level with arch-rivals Barcelona at the top of the table.
