Toni Kroos has in his podcast Just lups Celtic Glasgow fans praised the green clover. The support at Real Madrid’s Champions League game at Celtic Park last week was “incredible” and “deafening”.
With the good mood, Celtic fans seem to rely primarily on the surprise effect. Because when warming up, Kroos did not perceive a great mood. “They weren’t interested in either us or the home team. Normally the home team is celebrated, but there: simply nothing.” The atmosphere at the beginning of the game was all the better.
“I thought the stadium would crash,” said Kroos, describing the atmosphere at the beginning of the Champions League anthem. “It was unbelievable, I’ve never experienced what was going on there. Deafening!”
Then he turned to David Alaba and told him “that we are definitely already 0:2 behind.” And this atmosphere remained the same from the beginning of the anthem to the final whistle, an “incredibly good atmosphere” in Celtic Park. He also noticed the lack of hostility positively. There were no whistles when warming up – and after the game they were not disrespected. “Totally decent, outstanding audience. That was very, very impressive,” he concluded.
Kroos: Change of coach makes Leipzig game more difficult
In addition, Kroos spoke about the upcoming game against RB Leipzig, which recently sacked Domenico Tedesco and hired Marco Rose as his successor. While he perceives a positive effect, he would have liked to have made the change later. “For us, the manager was changed maybe a week early,” he joked.
He assesses the upcoming opponent under coach Rose “heavier than a week ago”. This is mainly due to the fact that you played “well below the level” with Tedesco. He is not afraid of the upcoming opponent, but “now a completely different team is coming to us”.
