Real Madrid star Toni Kroos has marvelled at the talent of the young Arda Guler.

Guler joined the club from Turkish giants Fenerbahce, and was labelled as the Turkish Messi in his country.

Having trained with the 18-year-old, Kroos has indeed revealed how good the young midfielder is.

Kroos said on his podcast: “It has to be said that he has great talent for his age. He has an excellent left foot,which I’m sure he will use to great effect.

“He has a great shot, he is very good technically, especially working within small spaces. I think he’s a pretty good and smart signing, especially for the future.

“He definitely brings a lot and that will help him to being successful here. He’s very keen.

“But on the other hand, you also have to be a little careful with so many expectations placed on young players. We’ve seen it happen with other players who unfortunately didn’t live up to their promise. And especially in this club, there are other issues that determine whether someone is successful or not. It’s not just about having talent, technique or shooting ability.”
