Football News – Kroos Explains His Absence Since June
Toni Kroos, a Germany national team and Real Madrid midfielder, has revealed that he suffered injury pains for 6-7 months.
“I’m happy because today I was able to do my third training session with the team without being in pain after six or seven months with pain, so it’s a very good feeling,” Toni Kroos told Goal.com.
“I have not played in three months so I have to gain a little rhythm. But the most important thing is that it doesn’t bother me much. From now on we can start talking about the games. We have reached that point where I wanted to be.
“I started feeling discomfort in March or so and I knew there was something in my groin. I knew that if I continued playing, I would get to the point of not being able to anymore, but it was very difficult to stop because I had to play in the Champions League and at the Euros.
“I returned to training in Madrid and saw that I had not improved and that I had to stop.
“We did a lot of work to find out what exactly the problem was.
“The operation wasn’t an option for me, I always prefer conservative treatment.
“This has lasted a little longer but I’ve played through pain for six months with a lot of pills between games. I knew it would last a little longer.
“I feel prepared to be in the squad,” Kroos concluded now, though.
