Real Madrid star Toni Kroos responds to Mason Mount’s post-match dig


Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has taken to social media this evening, to provide a response to the less than subtle jibe aimed in his direction by Mason Mount on Wednesday night.

Werner & Mount on target

Kroos and Mount of course faced off a little over 24 hours ago, in a Champions League semi-final showdown.

Chelsea welcomed Real to Stamford Bridge, with a spot in European club football’s grandest stage on the line.

The hosts headed into proceedings boasting the advantage – albeit a slender one – after bagging an away goal en route to a 1-1 stalemate in Madrid last week.

And, when all was said and done on Wednesday night, it was Chelsea who indeed went on to emerge victorious from the tie.

Timo Werner opened the game’s scoring inside the half-hour mark, before Mason Mount made sure of the Pensioners’ first Champions League finale berth since 2012, with a 2nd five minutes from time:

‘Need to lose sleep’

One of Chelsea’s stars, though, was not quite satisfied with his side’s eventual victory.

The player in question came in the form of Mason Mount, who, during an interview with CBS Sports following the full-time whistle at Stamford Bridge, opted to aim a dig at Real counterpart Toni Kroos.

After the German international revealed that not a single member of Thomas Tuchel’s squad would cause him to ‘lose sleep’, Mount hit back with the following:

‘I saw one of their players say before that he doesn’t lose sleep over individuals. But as a team, they need to lose sleep over us as a team.’

And as outlined above, on Thursday evening, Kroos has issued a response of his own, assuring that he is ‘still sleeping ok’, albeit whilst wishing Mount good luck in his debut Champions League final appearance:
