Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale is annoyed with his teammates, according to a report from Cadena SER, arguably Spain’s most important radio station. Apparently, Bale didn’t like the fact that both Marcelo and Courtois revealed some aspects of his private life.

Marcelo talked to Esporteinterativo and said that Bale “doesn’t speak Spanish at all, we communicate through gestures,” when asked about the Welshman, while Courtois revealed why Bale didn’t go to a players-only dinner saying that the attacker “goes to bed at 11pm” while adding that the players often call Bale the “golf player”.

The Spanish press and even some fans tend to criticize Bale saying that he has not adapted well to living in Spain, even though that probably doesn’t affect the way he plays.

Bale definitely seemed angry after scoring Real Madrid’s game-winning goal last night, as he got rid of Lucas Vazquez when the Spanish winger was trying to celebrate the goal with him. There could be another reason behind that attitude, like the fact that he didn’t feature in the starting lineup.

Still, Cadena SER’s report could be accurate here as Bale is often considered a very reserved man, so he probably didn’t like the fact that his teammates put him in the spotlight like that.
