Breitner slams Real Madrid midfielder Kroos for Germany humiliation

Germany hero Paul Breitner has taken aim at Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos after their World Cup elimination. Breitner told Besoccer that Kroos was to blame for the misfortunes of Joachim Löw's side against South Korea. "I'll be more than happy to go without his 15,000 passes," he snapped. "Many players in the Bundesliga can do that. Not once did he try to open up the space in central midfield or try to open up the opposition defence with a simple run or dribble. I wouldn't mind going without 99% of the precision of his passing. "They didn't have a plan. The defence with practically non-existent in all three games and in midfield they were only able to come up with pretty passes. This is a catastrophe for German football."
