"Kroos no longer has an international level"

"The orientation of his passes causes his game to lose speed because it hardly generates depth and, in this way, the rhythm slows down," said the former player.

"Kroos-no-longer-has-an-international-level"

Experts in Germany continue to poke at Toni Kroos after the elimination of the Mannschaft in the round of 16 of the European Championship. The last to charge the Real Madrid midfielder was Lothar Matthäus, the player with the most caps in the history of the four-time world champion. As Matthäus made clear in an interview with the German newspaper kicker, the white midfielder is no longer a footballer of the highest "international level" .

"Personally I have nothing against Toni Kroos, but I do not agree with his way of playing," Matthäus said in the media. In the European Championship, he continued, it was clear "that not only the speed of the player is key, but also the speed of the ball. In fact, he usually does quite well, always playing at the first or second touch. But the orientation of his passes causes his game lose speed because it hardly generates depth and, in this way, the rhythm slows down, "he stressed.

According to Matthäus, Kroos would have signed "good and also outstanding games" during the past season with Real Madrid. However, "then he disappeared again" in other games, so the German myth considers that Kroos, at the moment, is only a player of the highest "national level", a category in which he also places players such as goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Diego Demme, Pascal Groß, Kevin Volland and Timo Werner.
