Real Madrid winger, Vinicius Jr, has hailed Toni Kroos as a “legend”.

Kroos provided the assist for Vinicius’ opening goal in their 3-1 Champions League quarter-final first leg win over Liverpool on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old winger scored with 27 minutes played, controlling Kroos’ defence-splitting long ball with his chest before slotting past goalkeeper Alisson.

Marco Asensio grabbed a second after a mistake from Trent Alexander-Arnold before Mohamed Salah pulled a goal back for Liverpool, and Vinicius added a third, this time from a Luka Modric pass.

“Toni is incredible, he’s a great player, a legend of the club,” Vinicius said.

“When he plays, he’s got a class that no one else has. I thank him for the pass.”
