After winning the 2014 FIFA Ballon D'Or, Cristiano Ronaldo made a statement and defended Gareth Bale. The Welshman was whistled by some fans at the Santiago Bernabéu as he did not assist Cristiano Ronaldo on one isolated play.

Madrid fans are very demanding, they don't lie and they show what they feel. They know what Bale can do, he's a very important player for us, a key player. What happened last Saturday is now in the past, I also make mistakes, it's all part of the game. I think people should be nice to him. It was just a reaction after a passage of play. We get along well.

Cristiano Ronaldo's words are appropriate after he showed his frustration with Bale's mistake.
