Gareth Bale mocks Real Madrid after posing with controversial Wales flag
- Gareth Bale was seen posing with a controversial flag, following Wales' 2-0 win over Hungary last night.
Bale earlier said that representing Wales gives him more joy than playing for Real Madrid
Bale raised eyebrows after returning to action for Wales during the international break, following his month-long absence for Real Madrid, citing fitness issues.
The 30-year-old further added fuel to rumours about his broken relationship with Real Madrid after his nation's 2-0 win over Hungary last night which saw Wales qualify for the Euro 2020.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man was seen holding a flag that read, "WALES. GOLF. MADRID. IN THAT ORDER." He apparently made a statement to Real Madrid that the Spanish giants are at the bottom of his priority list.
Bale was all set for a move to China last summer, but the deal collapsed and he had to stay put at the Bernabeu.
Things started to look better when the season started as the forward, who was given a key role by manager Zinedine Zidane, impressed with his performances.
But now it seems Bale, who has scored two goals and provided as many assists in six La Liga games in the present campaign, still holds a grudge against Real Madrid.
It remains to be seen how Real Madrid react to the incident and if they sell the Welshman during the upcoming winter transfer window.
