Kroos says “Messi is not among the top three” of The Best awards

Tony Kroos ’podcast with his brother Felix turns into a gold mine of anecdote and humor as Diario AS explained.

The Real Madrid midfielder used it, along with his intelligent use on social media, as a platform to expose his sharp wit and broadcast some of his close opinions.

And the recent episode is no exception. Kroos backed Robert Lewandowski’s victory in Fifa’s The Best Award, stressing that Lionel Messi should not have come to the podium. He also lamented the short-lived thinking that dominates modern football.

As for the latter, he was clear. “You win the Champions League one, two, three times in a row, and four weeks later you lose the first friendly match, the first test match and *** smells again,” he said.

At the Best Awards, the 30-year-old was clear and unambiguous in his analysis. “Lewandowski absolutely deserves it,” he said. “But for me, Messi is not among the top three. I don’t think he did well this year. ”

Kroos ’performances in the podcast have caused controversy, as when he recently criticized players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their choreographic goal celebration.


On the field, however, the German is undoubtedly fine. He formed part of an experienced midfielder along with Luka Modric and Casemir who seems to have been revitalized in recent weeks and has been instrumental in restoring Los Blancos ’good form.

Madrid is playing the last home game of the season tonight, hosting tall Granada on Valdebebas in the hunt for their fifth consecutive league win.
