Toni Kroos SNUBS Cristiano Ronaldo as the midfielder leaves his former team mate out of an all-time Real Madrid five-a-side team... despite being the club's record goal scorer

Toni Kroos has chosen his dream Real Madrid all-time five-a-side teamThe German surprisingly left out his former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo Ronaldo is the club's record goal scorer and one of the best players of all timeKroos chose just one of his former team-mates as part of his dream squad 

Toni Kroos has surprisingly left former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo out of his personal all-time Real Madrid five-a-side team.

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 and became one of the club’s greatest ever players, scoring an astonishing 450 goals in 438 games before his departure in 2018.

German midfielder Kroos joined Madrid in 2014 and got to witness the now Manchester United star’s brilliance up-front during their four seasons as team-mates.

Despite this, Kroos left out Ronaldo when asked to name his dream five-a-side team.

He told Marca: ‘My goalkeeper is Iker Casillas, I have to choose him, I have not known any other Real Madrid goalkeeper like him since I was born.

‘I have to choose Iker and I had the pleasure of playing with him for a bit and he was a very special goalkeeper.  

‘My first choice for the defence is Roberto Carlos – a defender who was a lot more than just a defender.

‘He scored a lot of goals with his amazing left foot and he is also a great guy who sometimes travels with us and the team, so I think that I know him a bit now.

Kroos though chose to choose a different striker instead of the current Manchester United star

‘Like all Brazilian guys, he has a great personality and he is also in great shape – an absolute legend.

‘Then I choose Uli Stielike – I have a lot of respect for him for playing so many games with Real Madrid, it was incredible and he is my choice.

The next one is, of course, Zinedine Zidane – not only someone who I was fortunate to have as a great coach for a couple of years but as a player he was an idol.

‘The way he played was always great to watch – no doubt that Zizou has to be in this squad.’

During his time at Real Madrid, Ronaldo became the club’s all-time record goalscorer by obliterating the record previously set by Raul – who scored 323 goals in 741 appearances.

Despite Ronaldo scoring 450 goals while making 303 appearances less than Raul, Kroos opted to choose the Spanish legend to round off his team.

He said: ‘Next is Raul – a player that I was always watching as he is a joy to watch.

‘I always had the feeling that he was a great mentality player that gave everything and that he was a great captain.

‘And as I know today, when I have the pleasure of occasionally seeing him, he is a great guy and a role model on how to be a superstar. Raul has to be the striker.’

Kroos also left out Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano who is also seen as one of the club’s greatest ever players.

During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo won two LaLiga titles, a stunning four Champions League trophies – three of which with Kroos, and four of his five Ballon d’Or gongs.

Iker Casillas was the only one of Kroos' team-mates during his time at Madrid which made the team
