Germany coach Joachim Low has singled Toni Kroos out as a classy footballer who is a ‘very important building block’ for the German national side.
The 24-year-old will most likely be one of Germany’s main midfielders in the World Cup out in Brazil despite the fact he can’t hold down a regular starting place in Pep Guardiola’s side.
Kroos emerged for Germany back in 2010 and was part of an exciting, young side including the likes of Mesut Ozil who finished third, and Low believes he will be an important player for Germany out in Brazil this summer.
“In our midfield we will have players at the World Cup who are technically excellent,” he told Bild.
“Toni Kroos is for me a very important building block.
“He is a classy footballer with technique and game intelligence.”
Having worked with him for years, Low is well placed to know the strengths and weaknesses of Kroos, although it is abundantly obvious to everyone how good he is after his performance against Arsenal.
Talks with Bayern Munich are expected to happen within the next few weeks regarding his future with the club and Manchester United fans will be hoping that no agreement can be reached between Kroos and Bayern, as it would put United in a strong position to try and lure Kroos to Old Trafford in the summer.
