Toni Kroos has expressed his sincere apologies to Spanish player Pedri following the challenge that ended his tournament, as confirmed by the Barcelona midfielder on social media.

Pedri was forced to withdraw from the remainder of Euro 2024 due to a left knee injury sustained in a strong challenge from Kroos during Spain’s triumph over Germany.

This marked Kroos’ final appearance as a player, having retired from club football prior to the tournament and now from the international stage following Germany’s elimination.

After the match, Kroos apologised to the youngster on social media, saying, “Forgiveness and get well soon to @pedri! Logically, it wasn’t my intention to hurt you. A quick recovery and all the best. You’re a great player.”

Pedri, who will continue staying with the Spanish contingent for the remainder of the tournament, later replied that there were no hard feelings for the foul.

“Thank you Toni Kroos for your message,” the 21-year-old Pedri wrote on Instagram. “This is football and these things happen. Your career and your record remain forever.”
