Cr & benzema angry at Bale?January 6, 2015
Bale finding out just how quickly the mood can change at Real Madrid, with Cristiano Ronaldo and KarimBenzema reportedly furious at him following an incident during Los Blancos’ 2-1 defeat to Valencia.
Roaring through on goal in patented fashion with the score 1-1, the Welshman looked set to put Real back in front. But instead of laying the ball off toBenzema in acres of space, Bale went himself and was snuffed out by a combination of excellent goalkeeping and diligent defensive work.
It’s an instance that happens in plenty of games to players at myriad different levels, but according to J.I. Garcia-Ochoa of Marca, it’s not been forgotten nor forgiven by Bale’s fellow front men:
The Real Madrid dressing room have not yet forgiven Gareth Bale for his monumental miss at Mestalla and are still angry with the Welshman.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema both made their feelings very clear to him out on the pitch. Both the Portuguese and the Frenchman berated the Welshman for going it alone and at several points in the game appeared to talk amongst themselves about Bale’s selfish decision. Their gestures, which were caught by ‘Cuatro’ TV’s cameras, left no room for doubt.
