Toni Kroos is arguably the best deep-lying playmaker in the world, so it’d make sense that he’d know how to identify similar talents that maybe others are unaware of. However, in a quick Q&A sesh on twitter, Kroos said something that almost everyone is aware of.
(Let the transfer rumors begin)
If for some reason you still don’t know anything about this kid, Julian Weigl is a 21 year-old who plays for Borussia Dortmund. His favored position is central-defensive midfield and he is the preeminent midfield talent of his generation. His standout qualities are his sharp vertical distribution and his world class press resistance.

Aside from praising a fellow German teammate, Kroos also took time to praise Gareth Bale and answer an assortment of random questions.

Thanks for your questions ✌ ️— Toni Kroos (@ToniKroos) March 5, 2017
In an age where it is very easy for players to forget about their fans and let fame get to their heads, it is nice to see Toni take some time out of his day to openly answer questions from his fans and connect with them.
It’s also nice to see that he knows his football. You sure about not trying that coaching gig Toni?
