Toni Kroos seeks revenge on Chelsea star after Champions League exit

Chelsea defeated Real Madrid last season in the semi-final of the Champions League, as the Blues went on to win the competition.

The two sides met in the quarter-final this time around, and it was the Los Blancos who progressed.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos and Chelsea’s Mason Mount had a small feud last season.

Ahead of this tie last season, Kroos had played down the threat Chelsea posed.

When asked if Chelsea scared him, Kroos said: “In my 15 years playing football, I never lost sleep.”

In response, Mason Mount had said after Chelsea advanced to the final: “I saw one of their players say before that he doesn’t lose sleep over individuals. But as a team, they need to lose sleep over us as a team. We give so much, we defend for our lives.”

To which Kroos admitted he still isn’t losing sleep after their exit last season.

After knocking out Chelsea in the quarter-final on Tuesday, Kroos seemed to imitate Mount’s action from last season.
