Germany star Toni Kroos has hit out at former international team-mate Mesut Ozil, suggesting his claims of racism within the team and German federation are “nonsense.”

Ozil stepped away from Germany duty last month at age 29 , citing racism as the main culprit after a controversial pre-World Cup photo session with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The criticism Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan received for the photo intensified following Germany’s shocking World Cup exit at the group stage.

But Kroos has launched a scathing assessment of Ozil’s claims.

“The proportion that is well and properly addressed in [Ozil’s] statement is unfortunately overshadowed by the much higher proportion of nonsense,” the Real Madrid star told Bild .

“I think that he knows that racism does not exist within the national team and the DFB,” Kroos continued.

“On the contrary, we are always committed to diversity and integration. Mesut was a good example, as many of our fellow players [were].”
