Heynckes Asks Kroos to Retire Already
‘He should hang up his boots now!’ – Heynckes jokes Kroos should retire after Champions League win
Former Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has jokingly told Toni Kroos he might as well retire now after winning the Champions League for the third time in his career.
The Germany international was part of the Bayern team that won the treble under Heynckes in 2012-13, but whereas the Allianz Arena side have since failed to add another European title to their trophy cabinet, Kroos has lifted the trophy on another two occasions with Real Madrid.
“Toni is 27 and has won the Champions League three times, won the treble with Bayern and lifted the World Cup with Germany,” Heynckes was quoted as saying by Sport Bild .
“He should just hang up his boots now…Toni is a strategist. He has developed into an even better player at Madrid. He plays like any coach wants his players to play.”
