Kroos found himself dealing with an unwelcome guest—a rat that had made its way into his home.

In the video shared on social media by Football Espana, Kroos can be seen guiding the intruder towards a trap he had strategically placed in his top cupboard.

Kroos blasts Veiga

Sports Brief earlier reported on Kroos terming Gabri Veiga's move to Al-Ahli as "embarrassing".

Veiga had a breakout 2022/23 season, which attracted some top clubs in Europe, like Napoli and some in England. However, Al-Ahli won the race for his signature.

The 21-year-old is set to become the latest star from a European club to join Al-Ahli. This summer alone, they have signed Edouard Mendy, Riyad Mahrez, Roger Ibanez, Allan Saint-Maximin, Franck Kessie, and Merih Derimal.
