Toni Kroos criticises Spanish media for being overcritical when Real Madrid lose
Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that the Spanish media can overreact when the Los Blancos endure a poor run of form. The Carlo Ancelotti-managed side have lost three of their last five fixtures across all competitions, which includes a 2-1 El Clasico defeat to Barcelona and also a 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao, both away from home.
"Those who know me best know that my opinions don't change with the wind. That's what the Spanish media are like sometimes. Everything's great when you win a game, but it's all bad when you lose,” he added.
The German was bought by the Spanish giants for an undisclosed sum on a six-year deal and has made 42 appearances for the club so far this season, across all competitions.
Happy at Real Madrid: Kroos
The 25-year-old further said that he felt a bit jaded after playing a lot of games, but added that he had recharged his batteries now and was ready to go again.
"I've played a lot of games and I didn't have a winter break this year. It's normal to sometimes feel tired, but right now, I feel great and I'm really happy at Real Madrid,” the 2014- World Cup winner said.
Real Madrid next face Granada at home on April 5th.
