Cape Town - Ex-Bayern Munich midfield star and World Cup winner  Toni Kroos is not looking back after his summer switch to Real Madrid.

According to SkySports, Toni Kroos has "no regrets" about swapping Munich for Madrid. 

After becoming a contract rebel at Bayern Munich, the 24-year-old was allowed to join Real Madrid in the summer. 

"I've done everything right - I'm 100 per cent satisfied," he told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

"In a worldwide standing, Real Madrid are a small step ahead of Bayern Munich.

"If I just think about my presentation at the Bernabeu, there were 20,000 fans there even though I had never played a single second for Real.

"Something like that is inconceivable in Germany. In Spain, the football fans are more emotional about the game."

Kroos is now looking to add the La Liga title as well as the European Championships in 2016 to his already booming honours list.
