Toni Kroos : Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says if Germany midfielder Toni Kroos fails to start against FC Barcelona , then that will be down to the lack of energy of the midfield kingpin.
Ancelotti spoke about his midfield options ahead of Thursday’s Clásico and said the following :
“We’re eight months into the season and I still don’t know who the 11 players of the starting line-up should be. You’ll see tomorrow if Kroos or Modrić are left out.
You need many things for these kinds of matches, such as energy, personality and control of the ball.
If Kroos doesn’t start, that would be because of energy, because obviously he doesn’t lack personality or control of the ball.
We’ve got Tchouaméni doing well after returning to fitness and Camavinga is doing really well too. It’s good for us to have two players at such a high level.”
