Two men have been the focus of German football since Champions League winner Toni Kroos broke off an interview with ZDF reporter Nils Kaben because of alleged "shitty questions".

You have to understand the multi-millionaire Kroos.

On the distant planet where he lives as a professional soccer player, there are naturally no headwinds.

To all class fighters in the curves (and editors): You don't betray your ideals when you criticize the ZDF reporter, who doesn't really need the nine-euro ticket to whiz to Sylt.

On the Internet this week, "Kaben v Kroos" was discussed as ideologically as if it were "Roe v Wade".

Because women in the United States really have to fear for their right to an abortion, we football fans living in the land of laptop coaches should dutifully pray the Rangnick Our day after day that in the summer of 2022 we will cross the Toni pass and the Questions Nils may amuse.

And before we continue to slip into moderation in this embarrassing discussion of how large parts of the German football audience and German football journalism are, a cheap punch line: If you believe Corentin Tolisso, there was at least more communication between Kaben and Kroos than at Bayern Munich at the moment.
