Fans booed Toni Kroos every touch during Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid: Here's why

Toni Kroos booed during Real Madrid's win over Atletico Madrid in Saudi Arabia after comments about Saudi Pro League.

Toni Kroos faced a hostile reception from fans during Real Madrid's match against Atletico Madrid, and the reason behind it is clear.

Kroos came off the bench in the 67th minute as Real Madrid secured a 5-3 victory over Atletico to advance to the final of the Spanish Super Cup. The game, held in Saudi Arabia, ended 3-3 at the end of normal time, with Real Madrid scoring twice in extra time to secure their place in the final.

However, Kroos was met with boos and jeers from fans every time he touched the ball. This reaction from the crowd came after his critical comments about the influx of talent to the Saudi Pro League, where he cited money as the primary reason for players leaving Europe for the Middle East.

Fans at the Al Awwal Stadium made their feelings clear by booing Kroos and cheering when he made mistakes, such as slipping while making a pass. This led to a frenzy on social media, with one user noting that Kroos is unlikely to be bothered by the negative reception and remains focused on making progressive passes.

Kroos' comments were in response to Gabri Veiga's transfer from Celta Vigo to Al Ahli, which he labeled as "embarrassing" on social media. In an interview, he continued to criticize the Saudi Pro League, emphasizing that the transfers were motivated by money rather than ambition for the sport.

The crowd's reaction to Kroos during the match sparked discussions online, with one user expressing disbelief at the sight of a stadium full of people wearing Real Madrid shirts booing the player for his comments about players moving to Saudi Arabia for financial reasons.

Kroos' remarks and the subsequent reaction from fans have highlighted the tensions surrounding the influx of European talent to the Saudi Pro League, with the player's comments challenging the traditional values of football and raising questions about the impact of money on the sport.
