Kroos explains his Olympic goal: “It was not my most difficult shot”

Gil Manzano whistled a corner to the left of the Madrid attack. The German midfielder approached to execute it, pulled out of mischief and quality and scored an Olympic goal that opened the recital and paved the way for those of Zidane to the final of the Super Cup. In an interview with Sport 1, Kroos explained how he decided to get out of the hat that much: “It was spontaneous. I ran to the corner and saw that the Valencia goalkeeper was speaking with his defense about five meters from the goal. When I lowered the ball, they were still talking. So of course You must make a quick decision. The shot was fine. “ A shot that came naturally and without training, as revealed by the player himself: “No, you don’t have to train that. It’s actually the same shot as when you throw a foul. You simply aim at a different objective instead of on the side of the goal. ” Although it is not the first time he tries. He already touched it in the Champions League, against PSG: “Against PSG it almost worked, but Keylor reached the ball at the last moment …”. Kroos was also asked about Luka Jovic (21 years old) and his disappointing season. Signed by Real Madrid this summer for 60 million as one of the most promising nine in Europe (scored 27 goals in 48 games last season with Eintracht), he has only scored one in 16 (515 minutes). Against Valencia, in the semifinals of the Super Cup, Zidane gave him the title for Benzema’s injury and suspended again. The German midfielder came out in his defense: “You can’t say that Madrid is too big for Jovic. It is clear that Benzema is our number one. He is backed by many goals and his performance. It is not easy to play a game every three to four weeks and often be replaced “. And settled: “I think he has the necessary qualities to stay in Madrid.”last_img read more
