Toni Kroos was the player selected to give the pre-match press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s second leg against Chelsea.
He said: “We know the quality they have, but I think we’re doing good. Although we’ve now lost Varane, we’ve got back some of those who weren’t available for the first leg. What we do when we have the ball will be important. We’re ready to fight to the end. You can’t explain what Sergio means for the team. Whether he plays or not is down to the coach.”
Asked about the coach and his future, Kroos said, among chuckles: “I think he will be our coach next season. He has a contract!”
Finally, Kroos was asked about Hazard, how he’s doing and what he can bring to this tie. He said: ”We know what Eden can contribute. I think he’s doing better, able to contribute to his level. It’s hard to know how he truly is, because he’s played so little, but he is always a dangerous player.”
