Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount did not take Toni Kroos’ pre-match statements well, revealing not to be impressed by the individualities of the Blues, who qualified for the Champions League final at the expense of Real.
He shouldn’t be annoyed. Mason Mount, scorer in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League between Chelsea and Real Madrid (2-0), said he was upset by the words of Toni Kroos at the end of the meeting. In an interview earlier this week, the Madrid midfielder was asked about the Blues player he feared the most. “None of their player has ever kept me from sleeping for 15 years,” the German replied. “They play well as a team but I can’t name you.”
A little upset, the midfielder retorted on the ground but also in front of the microphones of CBS Sport at the end of the meeting.
“I saw one of their players say that none of our players were preventing him from sleeping,” the Blues-trained player recalled. Maybe he should lose sleep because of us as a ‘team.”
Mount has one regret for this meeting: not to have pushed Real Madrid further, which is doing well at 2-0. “I can’t find the words, he added. It was a great performance. We probably should have put in five (goals). I should have put one 20 minutes before scoring. We had that desire. . We wanted to win. It’s not over. I haven’t won anything yet but we have two cup finals that we want to win. “
