'What a silly guy': Some Real Madrid fans angry after Chelsea player's comments yesterday

Real Madrid supporters were not best pleased with Mason Mount’s remarks about Toni Kroos following Chelsea’s Champions League win yesterday.

The Blues saw off Los Blancos 2-0 last night to book their place in this season’s finale, where they will face Manchester City.

After his team’s triumphant victory, Mount aimed a sly dig at comment’s Kroos had made prior to the match about not losing sleep over an opponent.

“I saw one of their players before, he talked about how he doesn’t lose sleep over (any of our) individual, maybe he should lose sleep over us as a team,” the Chelsea midfielder cheekily claimed to CBS.

Madrid fans certainly let their feelings known towards Mount on social media.

Here’s several of their Twitter responses:

Blues domination

In fairness to Kroos, his exact words were: “In the 15 years that I’ve been playing football, nobody has kept me up worrying at night.”

This may or may not have been directed at any Chelsea individuals.

It now matters very little, as Mount and Chelsea managed to have the last laugh.

Thomas Tuchel’s men were terrific against Madrid and rarely gave their Spanish guests a moment to savour at Stamford Bridge.

They were on it from the first whistle, desperate to build on their away goal advantage secured in the first leg.

Timo Werner opened the scoring just before the 30-minute mark, before Mount iced the Chelsea cake shortly before the end.

Chelsea in control

2-0 was not a true reflection of proceedings. Kai Havertz hit the bar twice, Thibaut Courtios made a few decent stops and was saved by a few glaring misses.

Kroos and co. looked extremely leggy in wake of the Blues energetic group, packed with pace, power, experience and youth.

The 13-time European winners were humbled by the Premier League side, who are looking to claim this competition for only the second time in their history.
