The former Bayern Munich player said the Bavarians made a mistake selling him to Real Madrid, and that he won’t play on the “retirenment leagues.”
German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich sold Toni Kroos to Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid in 2014.
And the German footballer has said that was a big mistake by the Bavarians.
In an interview with Goal, he also added how he would never go and play in a retirement league like the MLS, Qatar, or China.
“For me, it was already clear at the time of the transfer that Bayern made a mistake with my sale,” he said.
“It’s true that [Bayern president] Uli Hoeness has made it public of late – and it’s a testament to his greatness that he addresses it that way.”
“If that was one of the reasons Pep [Guardiola] left Munich, he has to answer that, but I cannot confirm that he did not like my sale,” he added.
“I deliberately chose the end of the term in 2023.”
“Thirty-three could be a good age to retire, but then I also have the opportunity to decide whether or not to do something else,” he continued.
“I can already rule out playing in the US, China or Qatar.”
