The end of summer (or how to tell Toni Kroos that I love him)

The end of summer (or how to tell Toni Kroos that I love him)

When May still suggests to us the heat to come, the tropical nights, light clothing and eternal dinners, suddenly, like a dense and dark cloud that covers the sun, summer ends. And it does it like a hands-free slap across the car dashboard. The radio screams at me that that summer, which began in 2014, is coming to an end.

When Fernando Martín died I became older. Then I knew that death does not wait and does not forgive. Toni reminds us that neither does time. An expiration date that he has decided, not the field. Both, Fernando and Toni, are what I always wanted to be in sport, hard-working talents, discreet winners who play to avoid being second: pure Real Madrid. But also, how I wish I had looked. In both, their expression and appearance, always impeccable, have commanded obvious respect and admiration, also among a mass of confused rivals on the run.

I could say that I will carry the memory of having seen him play Super Pop like a schoolgirl, but I won’t. I will only say that he would like to face my anticipatory fears like Toni reads the games and find answers like he finds spaces between forests of taps. A normal guy who plays football, there is no greater greatness. Someone who knows how to say no when the neon lights and dizzying figures blind the rest. A citizen aware of injustices and the environment. In short, a close friend whom I will never meet.

I would like to face my anticipatory fears like Toni reads the games and find answers like he finds spaces between forests of taps.

When the next final concludes, we will remember like a sharp blow to the temple that it was all over. And there will be the bittersweet aftertaste that time cannot be reversed. The challenge will then be, as if it were another title, to get Toni to stay here. An antihero who takes out the trash in a tracksuit from his vantage point of being one of the best midfielders in history is essential. He has too much to contribute, also off the field of play. Any position in the club’s organizational chart (any) will shine with it. It is difficult to imagine him during office hours but he must stay among us, the idea of ​​not seeing him again at the club is heartbreaking. Toni, now that you’re leaving, stay. Do not say it was a dream.
