Toni Kroos could anger Carlo Ancelotti with what he said after Real Madrid's win over RB Leipzig

Toni Kroos could anger Carlo Ancelotti with what he said after Real Madrid's win over RB Leipzig

Kroos disagreed with his manager.

Toni Kroos has risked angering Carlo Ancelotti with his post-match comments following Real Madrid's win against RB Leipzig.

Los Blancos beat the Bundesliga side 1-0 in Germany on Tuesday in the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

A stunning Brahim Diaz solo goal just after half-time was enough to give Real Madrid the advantage heading into the second leg at the Bernabeu next month, although Leipzig will feel the final score should have been very different.

Benjamin Sesko looked to have given the home side an early lead when he beat the offside trap to head home.

However, a VAR review determined that Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin was impeded by an offside Leipzig player, and so the goal was disallowed.

After the game Ancelotti denied that the decision was controversial and insisted that the offside call was correct.

However, his midfield star Kroos didn't agree.

After the game a reporter said to Kroos: "At half-time we talked a lot about what happened in minute two, Leipzig’s goal, which was disallowed. It wasn’t offside. There was a little push to the goalkeeper.

"I don’t know if you’ve seen it already. I don’t think this favours football. This is not a question of whether it is a goal in favour of Leipzig, I simply think it is a legal goal. How do you see it?"

Sesko's early 'goal' was ruled out after a VAR check (

Kroos responded: "I see it the same way. I think in the end he [referee] called offside because it got in his [Lunin's] way, but the goalkeeper couldn’t reach the ball and that’s why the goal had to be given. You can’t argue any other way."

The 34-year-old's decision not to tow the party line may irritate Ancelotti slightly, but it is entirely in keeping with his outspoken personality.

In the second half of the match, Kroos clashed with Leipzig players after the German side refused to put the ball out of play when Brahim Diaz pulled up injured.

Earlier this week the former Germany star reignited a feud with Saudi Arabian fans who booed him during the Spanish Super Cup last month.

There has been speculation that Kroos could leave the Bernabeu this summer when his contract expires, although he has said he is not currently thinking about his future.
