Casemiro explains what Toni Kroos means to Real Madrid in 20 seconds

Brazilian midfielder Casemiro briefly explained what makes Toni Kross "one of the most important players" in the Real Madrid team.

Casemiro is in no doubt what Toni Kroos brings to the team. The Brazilian was complimentary about his team mate when he contributed to a new documentary about the German player, and explained what makes Kross "one of the most important players" in the Real Madrid side.

“He’s one of the most important players in the team because he sets the rhythm the team plays at in the way he manages the ball," Casemiro said. "If Toni wants the team to slow things down, the team will go a little slower – or if he wants to up the pace, the team will play a little faster. So basically, the way we play is determined by Toni Kroos”.
