Always up against the referee of the match against Sevilla, Toni Kroos believes that the title was played on a refereeing error.
While there is only one La Liga day left to play this Saturday (6 p.m.), Real Madrid (81 pts) must hope for a misstep from Altético Madrid (83 pts) on the lawn of Valladolid to keep its title of champion of Spain. But in the event of the Colchoneros’ coronation, the Merengues already have a ready-made excuse. In the podcast that he hosts every week with his brother Felix, Toni Kroos returned to the draw against Sevilla FC (2-2) and the disputed penalty awarded to the Andalusians for a hand fault by Eder Militao in the box . A bad decision by match referee Martínez Munuera, according to the German, which could indeed cost Real Madrid the title.
“It doesn’t happen often, but it was one of those days when I didn’t agree with the referee at all”, launched Toni Kroos. “When you feel like you’re at a disadvantage like this, I can only say one thing: it’s not acceptable. Zizou is not used to getting involved in refereeing decisions, but the fact that he went to see the referee right after the match is also proof that he felt he had been led in. boat. And me too. We have been very clear with him. He tried to justify himself but, in my opinion, it was a total blunder. Seeing VAR and revoking his decision, because he didn’t signal the hand in the first place, it seriously influenced the fight for the title in La Liga. If, in the end, we are not champions, it will also be, from my point of view, because of this situation. It’s clear to me. It’s not that it leaves me with a bitter taste, it just makes me very angry. “
