The German midfielder maintained that it is done to “suck everything financially; also physically to the players ”.
Real Madrid’s German midfielder Toni Kroos criticized the new competitions that are being “invented” in the world of football and regretted that that turns players into “puppets of FIFA and UEFA”, noting that the creation of a European Super League is not necessary.
“At the end of the day, in the face of all the new things that are being invented, in a way we are just puppets of FIFA and UEFA,” Kroos said on the podcast ‘Simply Luppen’ which he performs with his brother Felix and which was released this Wednesday.
Kroos pointed out that tournaments such as the League of Nations or the plan to expand the Club World Cup are thought “to suck everything financially, but of course also physically to each of the players. If there were a players’ union, we would not play a Nations League or a Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, “the German warned visibly annoyed.
The 30-year-old Real Madrid footballer and captain of the German national team also rejected the creation of a European Super League, which although its format can be “very exciting and interesting from a sporting point of view because there would only be high-level matches . But the gap between big and small clubs would be widening even more. “
“It is good to leave things as they are when they are well,” stressed the midfielder, for whom current leagues and international competitions such as the Champions League or the World Cup are already “top-tier products”.
