His superb passing, press resistance and ability to see the bigger picture on a football pitch separate him from the rest.

It’s for that exact reason that Zinedine Zidane will be concerned to hear that, as per El Chiringuito TV, Kroos has been injured while away with the German National Team.

The first-leg of Real Madrid’s Champions League quarter-final clash with Liverpool is on April 6th, which doesn’t give Kroos much time to recover and be back available for selection.

Real Madrid fans face a nervous wait to discover if he will be available to feature, as do Liverpool fans, whose chances of progression will be drastically increased if he does miss out.
