Wow! Real Madrid midfielder Kroos admits: Bayern Munich anger justified

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos can understand Bayern Munich's anger over last week's Champions League semifinal defeat.

Bayern remain angry over the 2-1 second-leg loss at Real after an equaliser from Mathijs de Ligt was denied by the linesman in injury-time.

"It was a bad decision," said Kroos on his podcast.

"We have to let the game continue and let the play end. I think the mistake is mainly the assistant's because if he raises the flag, the referee understands that he has seen it clearly and trusts that there was probably an offside of three metres.

"The anger is justified because we have to face the situation until the end, 100%."
