Kroos on contributing to social projects ...
For football players who are in the public eye and are role models, it's important to be active in that domain. We're doing very well – way too well – and there are many people for whom things are not going so well, and when you have the opportunity to help them, you should do it.

It's very nice. It's always a pleasure when the fans honour my performances from the previous season. I really appreciated being nominated in that team and I hope I will make it again next season.
