Toni Kroos’ retirement announcement has left many shocked and sad at the same time. The German midfielder is a Real Madrid legend, and the club, along with former players, praised him for his trajectory at the Spanish club. One of the former players who showed praise for Kroos was Cristiano Ronaldo. On Toni Kroos’ Instagram post, Ronaldo left a comment saying, “For everything, Toni! What an honour to share the pitch with you. All the best for the future.” Many Real Madrid fans were happy to see the Portuguese star honoring the German midfielder since many believed he left Real Madrid on bad terms.

Ronaldo and Kroos played 171 games together at Real Madrid and combined for 16 goals together. Together at Real Madrid, they won three Champions League trophies, two FIFA Club World Cups, one La Liga title, three UEFA Super Cups, and one Spanish Super Cup. The two players shared many wonderful moments at Real Madrid and were crucial players for the dynasty of Real Madrid over the last decade, winning three consecutive Champions League trophies under Zinedine Zidane.

Kroos made the announcement earlier this morning, but since the news is huge enough for the football world to digest, the midfielder made a joke on X, which made some laughs. Kroos wrote on his X account, “I’m trending at least?” The German midfielder got lots of responses, but ultimately, the Real Madrid fans are sad about his decision to retire. It would be a surprise if Real Madrid plans to pay tribute to Kroos this weekend at the Santiago Bernabeu before the match against Real Betis. It will be the last matchday of the La Liga season and the last match for the German midfielder at the Bernabeu as a Real Madrid player.
