REAL MADRID star Toni Kroos has slammed the Premier League and the money involved.
The German took a swipe at England’s top tier and suggested he does not think the division is better than other league’s in Europe.
Toni Kroos has criticised the Premier League
Kroos said: “The Premier League has not won an international title this year.”
Kroos continued: “TV money has been significantly higher in England for years and yet it hasn’t resulted in English teams winning everything.
“Thank God not all players look only at salary but also at winning.”

Premier League transfer spending this summer hit £1billion, meanwhile LaLiga clubs also splashed the cash buying £379million worth of talent.
That was an increase of 45.7 per cent from the previous year.
Kroos may not believe that the Prem is something like a Super League itself but he does think that proposals for a European Super League will come to the forefront again.
He stated: “Obviously, the idea was and still is.
“I see that the Super League is being worked on and it may take some time, but in my opinion in the end it will become a reality, but I cannot say when.
The central midfielder praised Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who played a key role in trying to form a Super League.
Kroos, 32, said: “I’m very close to him, he is a very kind-hearted person.
“Sometimes it can be a bit harmful, but sometimes he has to make tough decisions.
“From day one, he showed me how happy he was to come to his club, which is unusual for the size of the club.
Kroos was also full of praise for his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
He said: “He didn’t get here because his name is Ronaldo, but because he’s investing an incredible amount to keep going.”
