Toni Kroos: I felt comfortable on league debut


Summer signing Toni Kroos has said he felt comfortable on the field on his league debut for Real Madrid.

The German midfielder, who signed from the club from Bayern Munich in July, was part of the side that defeated Cordoba 2-0 in their La Liga opener at the Santiago Bernabeu. Karim Benzema opened the scoring in the first half – ending a run of 15 games without a goal for the club – and Cristiano Ronaldo secured the three points with a goal in the last minute of normal time.

Speaking to journalists in the press area after the game, the World Cup winner said he was happy to help the team get the three points but admitted they were made to work hard by the visitors.

“This victory is important, the first match of the league is always tough and we managed to win. I felt very comfortable on the pitch,” Kroos said.

The World Cup winner then switched his attention to Real’s next game against Real Sociedad, which takes place on Sunday evening. And he admitted he is expected a tough game in San Sebastian.

“We’ve had a series of very intense matches. Now we have a week to prepare for the next one. The visit to Real Sociedad will be difficult but we will go all out for victory in the Anoeta,” he commented.
