‘I’ll miss you’ – Modric reacts as Real Madrid confirm Toni Kroos’ retirement

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has said that he would miss teammate Toni Kroos after the Los Blancos confirmed the German’s retirement from football after this year’s Euro 2024.

Real Madrid had earlier on Tuesday confirmed that Kroos will hang up his boots after the conclusion of Euro 2024 this summer.

Reacting, Modric, in a lengthy post on Instagram, expressed sadness at the news. He also described the former Bayern Munich star as a legend.

“Having a hard time writing these words,” Modric wrote.

“The football world is sad because a historic footballer is leaving, and I admit, I am also very sad. Man, you are a legend of this sport and a legend of Real Madrid.

“I really enjoyed playing by your side. It’s truly been an honour to share Real Madrid’s centre field with you. You have qualities that make you a unique and special footballer, and there will never be another Toni Kroos. Unforgettable European nights, titles, the magic of the Bernabéu—we will never forget this golden time in the club of our lives. You achieved everything but we still have one left; let’s go for the 15th. I’ll miss you, my friend.”
