Toni Kroos caused a stir with his interrupted interview after the Champions League final. Now he has commented on his podcast.

Toni Kroos commented on the controversial interview with ZDF reporter Nils Kaben in his “Einfach mal Luppen” podcast with his brother Felix Kroos. Kroos had prematurely ended the conversation on Saturday evening after winning the CL final (1-0 against Liverpool) because of negative questions from his point of view.

“I got up, read a few comments. It was more about the interview than the game,” said Kroos in a previously published excerpt from the podcast, which was recorded in front of 60,000 Real fans at the Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid on Sunday evening .

He was annoyed at the moment, Kroos admitted: “We had to survive two or three pressure phases. But I said that too: That’s normal. What do you expect? That we dominate Liverpool for 90 minutes? You just have to beat them , that’s what we did.”

Kaben had asked Kroos several times about the Reds’ superiority during the course of the game (23: 3 shots on target), which annoyed the 2014 world champion. “You’ve had 90 minutes to think about sensible questions. And now you’re asking me two such shitty questions. I think that’s crazy,” he scolded and left Kaben on the lawn.

In his podcast, Kroos explained that he thought the question about the course of the game should have come later: “You can then ask again during the interview: How did you see the game itself? I wouldn’t have said: Wow, we have who played against the wall from the 1st to the 90th [minute]. I’m the first to say: balanced overall, probably even a few more chances Liverpool. But we just won it, like the last knockout rounds too .”

Kaben would have “already gotten his answer that way. But it was like this: ‘I want to hear that you won undeservedly.’ I don’t give a shit in the final! You have to win that, the final.”

In an interview with Der Spiegel, the ZDF reporter criticized Kroos’s approach: “With my colleagues, we came to the clear conclusion that a player shouldn’t behave like that. I would have been a journalist have to make a serious mistake so that the interview guest just walks away.”

However, the 54-year-old admitted: “I can formulate the question better. Of course.”
