Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos was asked to name the best goalkeeper, the best defender, the best midfielder and the best striker of his career, regardless of whether they were his teammates or rivals.
Of the current Real Madrid squad, the German midfielder only named one footballer.
Kroos said as per media outlet AS: “My entire career (more than 700) already shows that there had to be some extraordinary player, both in my teams and in the rivals. That is why it is very difficult to choose just a few.
“If I have to choose, I prefer these four: In goal, Manuel Neuer, both as a teammate and as a rival. Best defense: Sergio Ramos. Midfielder: Luka Modric. And in attack, clearly: Cristiano.”
