Ancelotti names 3 players that’ll replace Kroos at Real Madrid


Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has named three players to replace departing midfielder Toni Kroos.

On Saturday, Kroos will play his last game for Real Madrid in the Champions League final against Dortmund.

The Germany international had already announced he would retire from the game after the Euro 2024 this summer in his country.

Speaking about Kroos, Ancelotti admitted that the former Bayern Munich star will be a big miss but believes the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, and Eduardo Camavinga can replace the German in his squad.

Ancelotti said (via Madrid Xtra): “Toni Kroos? He thought it was the right moment [to retire]. I respect this a lot, even though I think his departure will affect us. We lose a very, very important player.

“We have an idea how to replace him with Camavinga, Valverde, Tchouaméni. We will play a different football but our success won’t change.”
