Gareth Bale was booed at the Bernabeu fans by coach Zinedine Zidane in the match of Real Madrid in the La Liga round 14.
Gareth Bale is becoming the focus of criticism at Real. After being brought on the pitch in the 67th minute, every time Bale touched the ball, the four corners of the Bernabeu stands gave boos, as well as a mocking banner aimed at the Welsh player.
The future of Gareth Bale at Real is very dim. Despite repeatedly missing Real’s games due to injuries, Bale was still able to play two full matches of the Wales team in the EURO 2020 qualifying round in the recent focus.
Bale had a celebration to upset Real fans with the banner “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In That Order”. This message can be understood as: With Bale, the first priority is the Wales team, the second is golf, then Real Madrid.
This provocation caused him to receive much criticism from Real fans. The climax was in the victory over Real Sociedad, despite a 25-minute effort to appear on the field, the former Tottenham player was still booed by the Real fans.
Even mocking banners aimed at 30-year-old players with the content: “Rodrygo. Vini. Lucas. Bale. In that order”. It can be understood that this message is that Gareth Bale is only the fourth choice for the winger position at Real, behind rookie Rodrygo.
Coach Zidane must speak out to ease the situation. Goal quoted the French coach: “I hope this will not continue. We always want our fans to stand side by side with the team. Fans have the right to do what they want, we can’t control it. Bale is a good player who wants to contribute to the team and aspire to play like other players.
With the victory over Sociedad, Real continued to share the top position of the La Liga rankings with Barcelona, both teams getting 28 points after 13 matches.
In the middle of next week, Real will have a match with PSG in the Champions League. The opponent that they lost 0-3 in the first match.
