​Real Madrid and Germany star has reacted with glee to a fan's online comparison between himself and tennis legend Roger Federer.

Uruguayan fan ​@EdwinCardonamty originally stated his belief that "'@ToniKroos is like the Federer of football. Pure class and elegance." The German promptly replied, exclaiming to his 4.67m followers that this was the "Biggest compliment ever."

The German, who has won two Champions Leagues with Real Madrid, as well as a World Cup and European Championship whilst on duty for Die Mannschaft, has enjoyed another stellar campaign alongside fellow creative force Luca Modric.

Kroos, who recently signed a new £346k-per-week contract tying him down to the club until 2021, has managed three goals and 12 assists in the league, as his side march towards their first La Liga crown since 2011/12.


Los Blancos have also reached their third Champions League final in four years, where they face Italian giants Juventus. 

Should they win that tie, they will be the first team in the Champions League era to win back-to-back titles, with the German a key component in their success.

Indeed, his partnership with Modric has allowed Real Madrid to dominate most games this season, and will be key in neutralising the threat posed by the Old Lady.
