Real Madrid midfielder Kroos: I want to win fifth Champions League

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos feels he can win another Champions League title.

Despite having four Champions League medals in his collection, he is hungry for a fifth.

"If you have had the feeling of winning the Champions League, you will want it again and again," said Kroos on Tom Junkersdorf's podcast.

"Sometimes a year or two goes by, which is understandable because others want to win it too, but the feeling doesn't disappear once you have experienced it: you want it again. Despite having four Champions Leagues, I want a fifth."

Real Madrid are a club that demands such desire, which Kroos was aware of from the day he arrived.

"The day of my presentation... There were 30,000 people there, not for a match but to see me kick a ball for a few seconds," said Kroos.

"It was different to anything I had seen or experienced. Here success belongs to yesterday; what matters is the present and winning the next trophy."
