Toni Kroos reveals who's at 'fault' for ugly Germany training ground bust-up ahead of Euro 2024 opener

Toni Kroos reveals who's at 'fault' for ugly Germany training ground bust-up ahead of Euro 2024 opener

Toni Kroos has discussed Germany's training ground spat ahead of the Euro 2024 opener with Scotland.

Toni Kroos has explained where he believes the blame lies in regards to Germany's ugly training ground spat.

On Monday, German newspaper BILD reported that Antonio Rudiger and Niclas Fullkrug nearly came to blows as 4,000 fans watched.

The two came up against one another in the Champions League final as Real Madrid prevailed against Borussia Dortmund, but on this occasion Rudiger is said to have repeatedly pulled Fullkrug down during a training drill.

Fullkrug is believed to have "cursed" at Rudiger following a tough tackle and the two ended up pushing one another.

Coach Sandro Wagner stepped in and diffused the situation and a couple of days before Germany host Scotland, Kroos addressed the incident.

However, he jokingly attached the blame to Fullkrug for getting into a battle with Rudiger and played down their tussle.

"I see it as a good thing when situations like this occur," Kroos told ESPN.

"Although I had to take the wind out of the sails a little, it wasn't meant to be taken too seriously.

"The only person Niclas was angry with was the referee. He knows that it's his own fault if he gets into a duel with Toni."

Rudiger didn't return to the team session and instead did a recovery run and at the time Fullkrug was also still unhappy.

But the duo appear to have patched things up. They were all smiles in Tuesday's training session, embracing one another while out on the pitch.

Fullkrug also shared a snap of he and Rudiger in training on Instagram, with the caption: "Jumping into Euro Week".

Rudiger also weighed in and commented: "Lüüüüückkkkkkkkeeeeee" with a love-heart on the post.

Kroos is playing his final ever tournament and after winning another Champions League with Real, will be hoping to finish his career in dream fashion by triumphing on home soil.

Hosts Germany have been paired in Group A along with Scotland, Hungary and Switzerland.
