Kroos explains why Sergio Ramos is the best captain he’s ever had

22 Sep 2020

Toni Kroos has waxed lyrical about Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who he believes he has learnt a lot from.

The Spanish defender often divides opinion, but the German midfielder is clear that Ramos‘ leadership style is different to anything that he has experienced before.

“When Ramos has an opinion, he expresses it for the good of the team, without reservation,” Kroos said on the podcast Einfach Mal Luppen.

“And that’s not like anything I’ve ever seen before.

“That’s why, if we’re talking about captains, in my opinion, he’s the best one you can have.

“I am more than happy to have Sergio as my captain.

“I have learned a lot from him and he a lot from me too, it has to be said.

“He is someone who responds extraordinarily well to everything and whose voice is heard by everyone at the club.

“Sergio leads by example.”

Kroos also praised Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, pointing to the fact that the Frenchman is able to keep things under control.

“He was a great player and he applies this knowledge in an excellent way,” Kroos explained.

“And he is also incredibly good at managing this group of stars.

“He knows all the players and has everything that surrounds Real Madrid under control.”
