Toni Kroos spoke out again at a conference on cyberbullying about issues that he feels are important to the football community.
The German midfielder was a guest at the meeting, which featured German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier as the keynote speaker, who personally invited Kroos to attend.
Apart from criticizing the tight schedule of matches that causes the players to be injured, he also commented on Mesut Ozil’s departure from the German national team, as he has done several times before.
“After the 2018 World Cup, I expressed my dissatisfaction with Mesut Ozil’s departure from the national team, as well as how he did so. They labeled me a Nazi right away.
“People called him a Nazi on the Internet because of his blonde hair and blue eyes,” Kroos said, adding, “I fought it, but it wasn’t easy. Today, anyone can impersonate someone else and mock them. It’s not healthy, and we need to do something about it. People are accountable for what they say.”
