'I'm not surprised by anyone anymore': Toni Kroos dismisses Mesut Ozil's defence of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's goal celebration after Real Madrid star called his mask theatrics 'nonsense'

Real Madrid star Toni Kroos insists he is looking to put his social media spat with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang behind him after the Arsenal striker's team-mate Mesut Ozil leap to his defence.

Earlier this week, Kroos branded Aubameyang's occasional mask-based goal celebrations as 'nonsense,' prompting Ozil to back the Gabon forward.

'I'm not surprised by anyone anymore,' Kroos told Bild, after both players had posted joking responses to him on social media. 'I found it amusing, but I've already ticked it off.'
