Champions league finals aside he’s never really lived up to the price tag though has he. Last season he was getting booed off (and on) was the pitch by the Madrid fans when he did get on the pitch. He’s been outed by team mates calling him ‘the golfer’ and saying he doesn’t have meals with team mates as they are too late for him.
Fans are fickle, if they don’t feel a player is fitting in then they get on that players back and his on pitch performances haven’t been enough to gloss over what they feel is a lack of effort to embrace the culture.

Champions League finals aside....pfft.

You’d think most clubs would be fairly satisfied with 4 Champions Leagues in 6 years...
He’s won La Liga too.

He has won more than Zidane ever won at Madrid and scored more than he ever scored. Won more trophies,he has done more for Madrid than Zidane ever did. No shock these stories have all come from Madrid and no one had a bad word to say about him previously until they want to get rid

 I don't have a dog in this fight but it's been quite well documented that Real Madrid's relationship with Bale hasn't been great considering his significant contribution and this is mostly a Zidane issue.

Real fans never warmed to him but early on it seemed like it was more to do with the fact that he wasn't Ronaldo or Benzema than his failure to pick up the language etc.

This should have been filed under 'manager doesn't rate him' but they're going down the 'make him an enemy of the people's road now which is probably an act of desperation.

Zidane didn't rate him whe  he was Real assistant, or during the first tenure and he doesn't rate him now. At least its consistent........

Bale is on big wages and if he wants to dig his heels in then thats his prerogative.

RM and their fans have always been an unpleasant lot.... it wasn't unknown for the fans to boo CR, a player who some would argue is the GOAT.

And also add in the fact that Zidane managed them to 3 successive champions league wins (and other trophies) which seems to be missing there. His playing career as a whole eclipses anything Bale will ever achieve and I guess he would the definition of what they class as a ‘Galactico’.

Blatantly moving for the money - £1million a week. Ludicrous.

Only a matter of time before they buy their way into the Champions league or instigate some world super league with the money they throw at it.

Bristol Shitheads spending £7.3m on an 18 year old from Monaco with just 3 first team games under his belt. WTF are football transfer fees coming to.

The boycott trophy finally finds a sponsor after the season has already begun. I've never heard of them and I won't publicise them here.
