Toni Kroos: Nobody Deserves The Treatment This Real Madrid Star Gets
Real Madrid star Toni Kroos has come out in support of one of his teammate’s after he was whistled at by a section of the Los Blancos' supporters on Wednesday night.
The Spanish giants got their 2017/18 UEFA Champions League campaign off to a winning start, as they beat Cypriot outfit APOEL 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Although it was a comfortable win for Real, some fans decided to target Wales international Gareth Bale with whistles each time he touched the ball - an act, which disappointed Kroos.
“This is Real Madrid, and everybody always demands the best of each player,” Kroos said, as quoted by Football Espana.
“Whistling your own player is sometimes what happens here, and Gareth doesn’t deserve that…nobody deserves that.
“Football is football, and there are games when it is impossible to play at your optimum level, and when players are whistled, it doesn’t help anyone so people must realise this.”
Bale played 82 minutes against the Cyprians and assisted Cristiano Ronaldo’s first goal of the game.
