Barcelona’s Gavi apparently trolls real star Toni Kroos with an Instagram post – and deletes it again
Was it a provocation? Gavi posted a picture of himself and Toni Kroos – but deleted it again after a short time.
Barcelona’s Gavi has apparently fired a jab at Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos via social media. The two had met on Wednesday in the semifinals of the Supercopa, which went to the Madrilenians 3-2 after extra time, delivered numerous duels in midfield.
Gavi posted in his Instagram-Story a picture showing the duo. With one crucial difference between the players: while Gavi dynamically walks towards the ball, Kroos sits on the ground and looks aghast. The 17-year-old did not include a caption.
Kroos deals heavily with social media criticism
However, the picture in the story did not stay online for long. Possibly because Gavi has realized that such a spike after a losing game isn’t necessarily the best idea. Kroos is also known for to react with irony to criticism and malice on social media.
In Spain’s LaLiga, Barca are 17 points behind the Madrilenians, who are dominant at the top of the table.
