Kroos: Madrid can do better

Toni Kroos believes there is more to come from Real Madrid after the Champions League win over Schalke and again rejected talk of a crisis.

Madrid dispatched the Bundesliga side in comfortable fashion in the first leg and appeared on German TV after the match to discuss Los Blancos’ fortunes after post-derby defeat unrest in the capital.

“We must remember what’s being said is relative. We’ve only lost one game, a week ago,” he argued, Marca reports.

“I think a lot of teams would be happy to have a crisis like that. Naturally we should be criticised if we have a bad game, as we did that day, without a doubt.

“We now have to focus on what we did against Schalke. We won against a good team, but we haven’t played our best game. But there weren’t any catastrophes. I know we have the potential to do better.”

Kroos was also asked about the prospect of playing his former team Bayern Munich in the Champions League and welcomed the idea.

“If it happens, it’ll be ok with me. I won’t have any choice if we play each other, so I’ll be eager to play against them,” he revealed.
