Kroos On Playing Behind Closed Doors

La Liga will return next week after almost three months away. There will be no spectators in the stands which will be a new experience for Toni Kroos.

Football is returning to Spain. It will begin on Wednesday 10th June with the second half of the abandoned Segunda match between Rayo Vallecano and Albacete. All fixtures will take place behind closed doors.

It will be a new experience for almost all clubs, as Toni Kroos recalled. The Real Madrid footballer spoke to the club’s official media outlets about the return to action and the lockdown.

“It’s the first time we have to play matches without spectators, let’s see how it is. The team which adapts better to the new environment will win,” the German midfielder said.

Comments which are similar to those of his teammate Nacho. “La Liga will be won by the team which adapts better to this new situation, it’s all going to be very different,” he explained last Sunday.

Kroos spoke about the training sessions: “It’s much better training with the group. Now it seems much more normal and we like it more. We weren’t able to have many touches of the ball during the weeks we were at home. We could work on our fitness at home, but not with the ball and even less so in a group.”

“We are trained with intensity to try and be in the best shape possible for the first game. We can’t do anymore. This situation is the same for everyone. You have to work on your fitness, playing with with the ball and how we have to play as  a team, that is what we are doing in training ahead of the 11 games left,” the German said.

Kroos also talked about Real Madrid’s 12th Champions League trophy which is three years to the day this Wednesday. “I have good memories, we won 1-4. The second half was one of the best in my six years here. It was the second in a row after the win in Milan, a night which we will always remember,” he concluded.
