Why Kroos stormed out of UCL final interview

Kroos reveals why he stormed out of interview after Real Madrid's UCL final win vs Liverpool

June 1, 2022 By Ali M.
The Blancos midfielder reacted angrily to a German interview straight after the final, and here's why.

Toni Kroos enjoyed Saturday's UEFA Champions League final, with the German midfielder, alongside his two familiar midfield marshals Luka Modric and Casemiro, helping Los Blancos to a record-extending 14th European title.

The Spanish giants took on Liverpool at the Stade de France, and after an exciting 90 minutes of football, Ancelotti's men emerged triumphant courtesy of a 1-0 score line, with Vinicius Jr. netting the winning goal.

While ecstatic celebrations ensued after the final whistle, Kroos wasn't in the greatest of moods after undergoing an interview with a German journalist straight after the game. The reporter asked the former Bayern Munich ace if he was surprised that Klopp's side dominated the game, a question that did not sit well with the Bernabeu maestro.

"You've had 90 minutes and you come up with two such bad questions," the 32-year-old said before cutting the interview short and leaving.

A few days have passed since that interview and while it obviously did not weigh heavily on Kroos' mind since the UEFA Champions League victory, as he was caught up with the title celebrations, the midfielder has now opened up at that incident, revealing why he was left upset by the question.

The Real Madrid star sat down for the Einfach mal luppen podcast with his brother Felix, arguing that the reporter wanted him to say Los Blancos won the final in an unfair manner.

"You can ask 'How did you see the match?' and I wouldn't have said that we had them against the wall from the first minute to the 90th," Kroos said, as per Marca.

"I'm the first to say it was an even game and Liverpool probably had a few more chances. But, we won the game, as we have many times in recent months.

"Instead, he wanted to hear me say that we won unfairly. I don't give a s**t in a final, you just have to win it.

"At that point I was just pissed off. I was pissed off at him.

"Of course, we had to go through two or three phases of pressure, I also told him that when he asked the question.

"But that's normal. What do you expect, that we dominate Liverpool for 90 minutes? They are a world-class team. We had to beat them and that's what we did."

Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp felt hard done by in regards to the score line, arguing that the fact that Thibaut Courtois was the Man of the Match is proof of the unfair nature of the result. Nonetheless, as Kroos stated, Ancelotti's men did just about enough to triumph and will now enter the upcoming season as the champions of Europe.
