Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos enjoys his relationship with coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Kroos has been a revelation in his first season with Real.
"Carlo Ancelotti has trusted me from the beginning in a position where I had not played much, but I like to play there and our relationship is good," said Kroos.
"We talk a lot before every game and we discuss how to address the opponents. I still do not know all the teams, but he tries to cover these gaps. It's one of the reasons why I came here, he said that Madrid would be even stronger with me."
