Bale Celebrates Euro 2020 Qualification with “Wales, Golf, Madrid — In that Order” Flag

The Welshman has ignited controversy all across the globe. He’s mocking the Spanish press, but is he also mocking the club?

The Spanish press will be in overdrive tonight after Gareth Bale celebrated Euro 2020 qualification with a Welsh flag revealing the words, “Wales, Golf, Madrid — In that Order”. The flag was created in parody after former Madrid striker Pedja Mijatovic made the exact statement on Spanish radio when talking about Bale’s priorities. The media campaign against Bale has been relentless, but he will certainly be doing himself no favors by stirring the pot.

It’s unclear what the reaction of the club will be, but many feel Gareth Bale will never wear the Real Madrid jersey again. The relationship between Gareth Bale and the club will likely end in a loveless marriage. The last 6 months have been amongst the strangest between a club and a player in modern history. It may have all been just a bit of fun, but whether he intended it or not Gareth Bale gives off the impression that he is mocking the club. Have your say below:


Is Gareth Bale mocking the club or is he within his rights after the media campaign against him?
