“It is a decision that takes the future into consideration, both for myself and Real Madrid, it means that we both want to move forward together”, stated the German.
After signing his contract extension with Real Madrid until 2022, Toni Kroos went to speak in the press room at the Santiago Bernabéu, where a video montage showed his greatest moments at the club: “it is a very special day for me. The opportunity to sign a contract like this only comes along once or twice, and I am very happy to continue here at the biggest club in the world. I would like to thank the club for the faith they have shown in me. I have been very happy here in Madrid since the very first day and I'm really pleased to be here for at least six more years ”.
 
“It is a decision that takes the future into consideration, both for myself and Real Madrid. It is a long term contract and that means that both parties are happy and want to continue moving forward together. I have always felt the faith of the team, my teammates and the fans. I have always felt fantastic here”.
 
Titles
“I still have to win LaLiga, which is a really important competition. When you are at Real Madrid you always have to look to win ever competition, but we have the potential to win LaLiga. it is a long journey and you need to be consistent, which is something we have lacked at times, but I'm certain that we will win it”.

I have been very happy here in Madrid since the very first day.

“Real Madrid may well be the last team I play for. Those who know me know that when I sign a contract as long term as this, it is not something I take lightly. I spent a lot of time considering this and the end date is no coincidence. I don’t see myself as the kind of player to still be playing at the age of 36, I want to go out at the highest level”.
 
Offers
“As players we cannot defend ourselves against all of the rumours, that's why I didn't say anything in summer. I have been very happy at Real Madrid since day one. I have had two great years and I didn't consider any other option. Real Madrid thought the exact same and that's why we made an agreement”.
 
LaLiga
“I have to admit that I don't read the newspapers very often and i don't know how people have criticised Zidane. The team did not play well against Eibar, but they did play well against Las Palmas and Dortmund. Zidane is important to us. He is dedicated and his quality is beyond doubt. There is a really good atmosphere within the team. This isn't an excuse but we have had injuries to important players. We will need a win in Seville on Saturday”.
 
Position
“Everyone knows that I prefer to play in the centre, but where exactly in the centre isn't really important for me. I have played in several positions throughout my career, both offensive and defensive. I like playing in the middle”.
 
German
 “I prefer speaking in German. I want to be completely clear in everything that I say. Someday soon I will give an interview in Spanish for Realmadrid TV, but today i don't want to commit any errors and I prefer to speak in German”.
