Toni Kroos has hit back at Bernd Schuster after the former Real Madrid manager labelled him a “diesel tractor”.
Schuster, who guided Los Blancos to La Liga and Super Cup glory in the 2007/08 season, was hugely critical of the Bernabeu outfit following their 3-0 home defeat to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.
Speaking on El Transistor radio, Schuster said: “That midfield couldn’t even win against Girona’s. Kroos is now a diesel tractor.
“Madrid are missing goals. They lost the best scorer in their history this season.
