AS also enjoyed the pandemonium. "Never has a Real player said farewell in a more beautiful way. This emotional moment will always stay with us."

Shortly after the match, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti had kind words for Kroos, something Zinedine Zidane also did on Instagram on Sunday morning. "A player and a person of great class. Thank you, Toni," wrote the Frenchman, under whom Kroos won the Champions League three times.

Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez also praised Kroos, calling him "a symbol of excellence and dedication." Fans around the world took to social media to express their gratitude and admiration for Kroos, sharing memorable moments from his illustrious career.
