Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has suggested his new documentary is not a direct attack on Bayern Munich, though admitted it does contain some “bad things” about his former club.
The 29-year-old was giving his thoughts ahead of the launch of an upcoming documentary about his career, including a section which showcases his formative years in Bavaria.
Kroos’ new documentary: Five key things to know…
- The Los Blancos midfielder’s documentary has aptly been titled “Kroos”.
- It was released in Germany on July 4.
- Kroos has recently spoken about how he felt undervalued at Bayern Munich.
- He says the documentary hasn’t been a chance for him to have a dig at his former club.
- But rather “a review of good and bad things” during his career.
Kroos left the Allianz Arena for Real Madrid in 2014 and has since flourished on Spanish soil, winning a plethora of domestic and European titles during his five years at the Bernabeu.
But it has not all been plain sailing for the German, who suggested the documentary captures some strenuous times during his teenage years.
He told Omnisport: “It includes a review of how I felt at that time as an 18, 19-year-old. And there were also things that didn’t satisfy me.

“But that has nothing to do with hitting back. I’m just reflecting how I felt back then.
“I am not saying that I was always right in the past, but it was simply how I felt. If you want to call that hitting back then you can, if you only read the headlines but not the text.”

“Generally, I had a good time with Bayern”
Delving a little deeper, the 2014 World Cup winner reflected on his time with the Bundesliga champions, suggesting he stayed for as long as he did because he was receiving vital first-team football and winning silverware.
“People should watch the film and then they will understand everything,” he added. “This has nothing to do with hitting back against Bayern.
“Of course, a documentary also includes a review of good and bad things. Everyone generally knows that I had a good time in Munich, otherwise I wouldn’t have been there for seven years.
“I won the German championship three times and the cup three times. And for the most part, I was as a regular player as well.”
