I Never Regret Leaving Bayern For Real Madrid – Toni Kroos
Real Madrid midfielder, Toni Kroos, has disclosed that he does not regret his decision to ditch boyhood club, Bayern Munich for Real Madrid.
Kroos left Bayern Munich three years ago to join the La Liga giants.
The 27-year-old has become a force to reckon with after winning the Spanish League title and back-to-back Uefa Champions League trophies.
“My change of team was correct, in fact, from my point of view there is no doubt about it,” Kroos said in an interview with the German Football Association (DFB).
He said, “Clearly, if you go abroad to a top club, it means one more step in your development.
The German International said, “Carlo Ancelotti wanted me in Madrid, and had bet on me.”
On his one season with former Bayern head coach, Pep Guardiola in Bavaria before moving to the Spanish capital, Kroos added, “I wouldn’t undervalue my year under Pep Guardiola because I think I made a big step forward in that year.
“I look at my career in phases: Jupp [Heynckes] was the most important coach in the early stages of my career, both at Leverkusen [during a loan spell] and then in Munich as well.
“Pep Guardiola saw me as a central player in his system, which my style of play fit into perfectly,” he said.
