Real Madrid star Toni Kroos names eight biggest teams in England… starting with BURNLEY

REAL MADRID star Toni Kroos named BURNLEY first when asked to name nine Premier League clubs.

The German midfielder went head-to-head with Real team-mate David Alaba in a club quiz.



And when he was asked to name Premier League teams, Kroos started with the Clarets before following it up with West Ham and Tottenham.

Kroos also went on to name Manchester United, who he almost joined back in 2014.

In an interview with The Athletic, Kroos revealed: "David Moyes had come to see me and the contract had basically been done but then Moyes was fired and Louis van Gaal came in, which complicated matters.

"Louis wanted time to build his own project. I didn't hear anything from United for a while and started having doubts."

Fellow big clubs Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City followed.

One fan reacted to Burnley being the first club out of Kroos' mouth, saying: "When Toni Kroos hears Premier League his first thought is Burnley."

Another said: "Toni Kroos needs to clarify why he went with Burnley first."

Burnley fans are rightly happy with the World Cup winner mentioning their club first.

Chelsea, who Kroos named fifth, will meet the player in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Real are in London for the first leg of the clash.
