Bale Jeered on Real Madrid Return
Gareth Bale has been made to pay for his actions over the international break as he was jeered during a cameo appearance in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Real Sociedad.
Despite missing a number of matches for Los Blancos due to fitness, Bale was able to play in both of Wales’ Euro 2020 qualifiers over the international break.
Following his nation’s vital 2-0 win over Hungary on Tuesday, he was pictured celebrating with a banner that mocked media accusations that he prioritises Wales and golf over Real Madrid.
While his agent was quick to suggest the incident wasn’t anything to worry about, Real fans let their feelings known on Saturday.
Having started the game on the bench, Bale was introduced for Rodrygo in the 67th minute to a wave of whistles and jeers at the Santiago Bernabeu.
That reception continued every time the Welshman got on the ball with a sign reading ‘Rodrygo. Vini. Lucas. Bale. In that order’ also spotted in the crowd.
