Ancelotti Hails Kroos’ Legacy

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti showered Kroos with praise after the match. “The Bernabeu gave him the farewell he deserves,” Ancelotti remarked (via Football Espana). “He’s been one of the greatest midfielders, with a lot of quality and a fantastic character. He’s always had very little ego and played for the team. We’ve been lucky to have him for ten years.

Kroos’ emotional send-off, serenaded by teammates and fans alike, was a testament to his immense contribution to Real Madrid. His final La Liga performance served as a powerful reminder of his world-class talent, solidifying his position as one of the greatest midfielders of all time.
