In the wake of the doubleheader between Chelsea and Real Madrid, both Los Blancos’ Toni Kroos and Blues’ Mason Mount have had a dig at each other on separate occasions.
The subtle rivalry started when the Madrid midfielder, Toni Kroos took a dig at the entire Chelsea team that none of their players gives him a sleepless night, something obviously Mason Mount didn’t take lightly.
In an interview with CBS Sports, the young Chelsea ace, Mason Mount took a subtle swipe at the German international.
“I saw one of their players say before that he doesn’t lose sleep over individuals. But they need to lose sleep over us as a team. We give everything and we’re so strong together, we defended for our lives”. You saw that today we don’t give away many chances. We are solid and we need to keep that going” he quipped.
However, when everyone thought that dust had settled on the entire issue, Toni Kroos in a new also replied subtly and congratulated Chelsea on advancing in the stead of Los Blancos.
In addition, he enumerated his records as against that of the Chelsea youngster, Mason Mount. He wrote on his social media handle, Twitter that he is still sleeping alluding to his first comment about the Chelsea team.
“Still sleeping ok. But well done yesterday. congrats. Good luck in your first CL final.”

After being wasteful on the night, Mason Mount managed to salvage his image after putting the icing on the cake, by slotting home a diagonal pass from compatriot, Christian Pulisic who had just come to replace speedster Timo Werner.

Chelsea were up ahead in the first half courtesy a free header from German international Timo Werner who calmly headed in Kai Harvetz chip ball after it failed to enter the twine.
However, with five minutes to end the game, a surging run from Ngolo Kante to break a possible build-up at the backyard of the Los Blancos defence led to the second as Pulisic who scored during the first leg recorded an assist for the day.
