Toni Kroos has responded to Mason Mount’s comments on losing sleep over Chelsea players.
Chelsea beat Real Madrid on Wednesday to qualify for the Champions League final. Before the game Los Blancos’ midfielder Kroos has claimed that he never lost sleep over any player.
“In my 15 years playing football, I never lost sleep,” the 31-year-old stated. “They showed in Madrid that they play as a team. They have a German coach so that doesn’t surprise me. They defend well and have pace up front, those are their strengths.”
After the Blues beat Real Mount responded to Kroos’ comments, as he said:
“I saw one of their players say before that he doesn’t lose sleep over individuals. But as a team, they need to lose sleep over us as a team. We give so much, we defend for our lives.
“You saw that in not many chances that we gave away. We are solid and we need to keep that going.”
And on Thursday, Kroos took to his Twitter to respond to Mounts’ comments.
“Still sleeping ok,” the German tweeted. “But well done yesterday. congrats. Good luck in your first CL final.”
