‘Embarrassing’ – Toni Kroos hits out at Liverpool and Chelsea target’s move to Saudi Arabia

Toni Kroos has lashed out at Gabri Veiga’s imminent move to Saudi Arabia, calling it ’embarrassing’.

The Celta Viga star had been tipped for a big move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs with the 21-year-old expected to become one of the best young players in the game.

Liverpool and Chelsea were both among the teams interested in a move for the Spanish midfielder, while Napoli had been expected to complete a deal for the player.

However, it’s Al Ahli who sign him after making him their top secret target.

Fabrizio Romano took to Instagram to share the news of the Spain under-21 international’s move to Saudi Arabia, leading Real Madrid star Kroos to drop into the comments.

“Embarrassing,” he wrote.

While veteran stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Neymar N’Golo Kante, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez have all moved to Saudi Arabia for what could be the last long-term contract of their careers, Veiga is choosing to get when his career is very much in its infancy.

One of La Liga’s brightest talents, the central midfielder scored 11 goals in 36 league appearances, as well as laying on four assists for his teammates.
