After beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final, Toni Kroos was able to celebrate his fifth handle pot. No German player has won the Champions League more often than the native of Greifswald. After the game, Kroos was a popular conversation partner, especially in the German media. The questions from ZDFReporter Nils Kaben hit the national player so badly that he broke off the interview without further ado.
The interview began relatively harmlessly at first. Kaben wanted to know from Kroos whether he could achieve the fifth Champions League triumph of his career so soon after the game. Kroos, on the other hand, pointed out that this fifth title win was special for him as it was the first time all his children had been at the stadium.
The conversation picked up speed when the ZDF-Journalist suggested that Real Madrid were actually the losing team. Whether that’s why the triumph was so beautiful “Because it wasn’t so obvious when it came to the course of the game?”asked Kaben.
Kroos was very piqued and replied: “What is taken for granted? Winning the Champions League is also not taken for granted.” At this point, Kaben would probably have changed the subject better. However, the ZDF man pushed another critical question about the course of the game: “Was it surprising to you that Real Madrid were in quite a bit of trouble?”
“You had 90 minutes to think of sensible questions, honestly. And then you ask me two shitty questions!”

Kroos finally burst the hat cord. “Well, you had 90 minutes to think of sensible questions, honestly. And then you ask me two shitty questions!” Shortly thereafter, the real professional broke off the interview.
When Kroos had already disappeared from the picture, you could still point to the 32-year-old ZDF-hear mic say: “Really bad! really bad, really! You first ask three negative questions! Then you already know that you’re from Germany!”
