Kross said this while giving his honest opinion about the prestigious top-individual award.

According to him, individual awards like the Ballon d’Or in football are ‘unnecessary’.

The German joined Real Madrid from Bayern Munich back in 2014 and has since seen the Ballon d’Or being awarded to his teammates like Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo (now former teammate) and Karim Benzema (now former teammate) on five different occasions in the past.

Speaking on his podcast “Einfach mal Luppen” alongside his brother Felix, Kroos said: “If there had been one, I wouldn’t have stood up and rejected it because that is already an award. Above all, it is prestigious, but not important.”

He added, “My default attitude is simply that I don’t think it’s important – or not as important as other players think. I have always seen myself as a team player and I want to win titles with the team.

“That’s what counts in the end. Because I believe that the team deserves the titles, I also believe that individual awards are unnecessary in a team sport. No single player would have even come close to winning anything on their own.”…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
