Kroos Is Our Man

Ever since his arrival from PSG, Carlo Ancelotti has brought in a style of football that is somewhat unfamiliar at Real Madrid and certainly to our crop of players who had played their football under Jose Mourinho.

The style that Ancelotti brought was possession based. At the beginning of last season, we struggled to adapt to Ancelotti’s system and he constantly called for balance.

Eventually, the team started to perform when Ancelotti switched to a 4-3-3 formation which allowed for a style that relied a bit more on counter-attacking football that made best use of our pacey attackers.

In bigger games, he altered his formation to a 4-4-2 and the counter-attacking style was executed to the most spectacular effect. This was especially evident in our win over Bayern Munich.

But now, it’s a new season and Ancelotti is pushing possession style tactics again. For this transition to be complete, we needed a midfielder that could dictate the tempo of play and spread the ball effectively to the players around him.

The midfielder that we’ve found is €30 million signing, Toni Kroos. Kroos is amongst the finest in his position on the planet and is fresh off a victorious World Cup campaign with Germany where he has shown exactly that.

Kroos is our man to bring Carlo Ancelotti’s vision for the team to light and the match against Sevilla on Tuesday proved this. With him in the middle of the park, Real Madrid will be unstoppable this season.
