Toni Kroos has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent weeks, linked with a move away from Bayern Munich to Manchester United, but he appeared to upset Red Devils fans on Facebook completely by accident.
The German midfielder wrote a post on Facebook which certainly—at first glance—didn't translate too well:
In the semi-finals of course?! Some United supporters could scarcely contain their fury:
Toni Kroos dropped "In the semi-finals of course" This guy does not rate United in the least. 😂😂😂 #NotGoingToUnited— The Art Of... (@CKthinks) March 22, 2014
Toni Kroos "into the semi finals of course" Arrogance at it's best, we could use that to our advantage— ahr_mufc (@ahr_mufc) March 21, 2014
But that wasn't quite the whole story. All Kroos was doing was updating an error from the previous Facebook post, added moments before.
In that match he'd talked with deference about needing "two top games" to get to the quarter-finals—only to realise that he'd meant the semi-finals (of course!):
Still, as some jokers point out, any transfer may be put on the back-burner if he witnesses his Bayern side dominate Manchester United over two legs.
