Champions League: Biggest club must win biggest prize - Kroos
Speaking in the German press, the Real Madrid midfielder was not shying away from the weight of expectation on his side's shoulders.
Real Madrid's Toni Kroos has acknowledged that there is huge pressure on Los Blancos to come away victorious from Saturday's Champions League final in Milan.
Real had to settle for second in LaLiga this term, while their Copa del Rey campaign came to an early end after they were thrown out of the tournament for fielding an ineligible player.
And, in an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitung in his native Germany, Kroos admitted: "For this to have been a good season in the eyes of public opinion, we have to win this last game."
The 26-year-old concluded: "That's what is expected of Real Madrid: the biggest club has to win the biggest competition."
