Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos was recently seen celebrating the team’s victory in the Spanish Super Cup in Riyadh, but he was pictured not wearing the special commemorative shirt with Arabic inscription that his teammates were wearing.

Kroos played a significant role in the 4-1 win over their rivals, featuring in midfield for 81 minutes before being substituted for Luka Modric.

However, during the post-match celebrations, he was photographed wearing a regular shirt instead of the one with the unique design worn by the rest of the team.

Kroos had faced criticism from Saudi fans following controversial comments he made about high-profile players prioritizing money when moving to the Middle East country.

In particular, he labeled Gabri Veiga’s decision to join Al-Ahli as “embarrassing,” especially given Veiga’s previous links to clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Napoli.

The German also told Sports Illustrated:

“It’s been said that they play ambitious football there, but it’s all about the money. In the end, it’s a decision for the money and against football.

“That’s when it starts to become difficult for the football we all know and love.

“Everyone has to make that decision for themselves, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who decided to do it towards the end of his career.

“But it becomes very difficult when players, who are in the middle of their career and have the quality to play for the best clubs in Europe, decide to make those changes.”

During the Spanish Super Cup semi-final match between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, Toni Kroos faced jeers from Saudi fans when he came off the bench, and the jeering continued every time he touched the ball.

After the game, the 34-year-old sarcastically commented on the situation in a social media post, writing ‘amazing crowd.’

Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, expressed his confusion about the fans’ reaction to Kroos.

Despite the reception received by Kroos, his teammate Dani Carvajal praised the supporters and the atmosphere at the Al-Awwal Stadium.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
