La Liga

Toni Kroos' press conference before facing Chelsea and talks about Kanté

🗣“We will all be very motivated and we will do everything we can. We know how these things work and the most important thing is our quality. That’s what we have to do to get through to the final”.

🗣“We’re defensively strong and that’s important when it comes to getting through a tie like this one. We have to create a bit more than we did in the first leg. We’re going to need to do that if we’re to get through the tie”.

🗣“In the opening 35 minutes of the first leg, we didn’t press their defence well and we were too late in getting at them. We could do better. In the 2nd half we kept the ball more and we have been more comfortable when we’re in possession”.

🗣“My discomforts? If I am here it's because I'm feeling well. We’re capable of matching Chelsea in physical terms. We’ve welcome. We got some players back who were absent in the first leg, though we’ve lost Varane, but everyone who’s here is here to play and fight”.

🗣“The most difficult player to face at Chelsea? No player has ever taken my sleep in 15 years. They play well as a team but I can't tell you a name. They showed in Madrid that they play as a team. They have a German coach so that doesn't surprise me. They defend well & have pace up front, those are their strengths.”.

🗣“It's not been an easy season, many injuries... but we got through it and now it doesn't matter, right now we're fighting for 2 titles and want to win them. We’re in with a chance of making the final. A lot of people say that we’re tired, but we’ve got an important game tomorrow night and we’ll be giving our all. We’re in no doubt that we’re capable of winning both competitions”.

Best midfield in world football?

🗣“I don’t watch other teams’ games and I can only comment on us. I like to hear hear that, Casemiro, Modric and me are the best midfield in the world, but if we don't win anything it's worth nothing. We’re having a good season and that’s what we’re here for at this club”.


“Whether he is going to play or not is up to the coach. What Sergio is for the team does not have to be explained”.


“We know how the player he is. He’s a player who has a lot to offer us. It's a pity he couldn't show his level in the last month but now he's feeling better. He can help us a lot. I don't know how he's feeling exactly but he’s a threat to opposition defences and I hope he will help us tomorrow.”.

2012 final

“I taught me that before winning anything, you have to suffer and that defeat caused me to suffer”.

🗣"My comment under Lucas Vazquez's post wasn't a joke."

Antonio Blanco

“I see him well, he has quality to play at a good level. The main thing is he is not afraid of having the ball. He has something, and he has quality”.

Zidane’s future

“Zidane has another year on his contract so I think he will stay with us next season”.


“He’s a good, physical player. He can get up and down the pitch. We saw him immense quality during the opening 25 or 30 minutes”.
