Toni Kroos – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have engaged in a silly Twitter feud.
The German midfield playmaker has called out the Gabonese striker for his celebrations on the pitch.
Referencing a celebration by Aubameyang, who has previously sported Spiderman and Black Panther masks, father-of-three Kroos said: “I find it silly. It’s even worse if there’s an object hidden in their socks.
“Aubameyang once celebrated and took out a mask. That’s where it ends with me. I don’t think that’s a good role model, either. What nonsense.”
The Arsenal captain has now hit back at the Real Madrid midfielder for his unnecessary comments.
“By the way, does this @ToniKroos have kids?” he posted. “Just to remember I did it for my son [a] few times and I will do it again.
“I wish you have kids one day and make them happy like this Junior School pupils Talk and don’t Forget #maskon #staysafe.”
The post was accompanied by an image of himself drawn by a school pupil after the youngster was asked to think about what happiness meant to them.
Auba is well within his rights to do what he wants on the pitch and Kroos should really mind his own business.
