- Although being excited on getting the award, the midfielder mentions the World Cup as an unpleasant experience
Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Toni Kroos have won his German footballer of the Year nomination and had something pleasant to say about it.
However, the player still seems to be upset about his national team’s bad luck at the past World Cup.
“Better late than never 😉 footballer of the Year, a nice award! Despite the disappointing World Cup, it was again a special year with the 4th CL victory!
Thanks to my family, to all who support me, my teammates and of course to everyone who voted for me.”
Besser spät als nie😉
Fußballer des Jahres, eine schöne Auszeichnung! Trotz der enttäuschenden WM war’s mit dem 4. CL-Sieg wieder ein spezielles Jahr!
Danke an meine Familie, an alle, die mich unterstützen, meine Teamkollegen und natürlich an alle, die für mich gestimmt haben. pic.twitter.com/IRpnISwyID

Germany couldn’t manage to get through the World Cup’s last-16 and finished their performance much earlier than expected.
