Real Madrid Bring Golf Club To Jeddah To Make Up For Gareth Bale’s Absence

This is not satire — much to you’re initial assumption.

As has been the trend over the past few months, everyone inside the Real Madrid camp has taken the Gareth Bale / golf criticism lightly. While the Spanish press have continued to batter Bale over the course of his Real Madrid career — making up false stories about his lack of Spanish-speaking abilities, and going over the top about the Welshman’s love for golf — Bale and the team have learned to laugh it all off.

Bale received a golf club from his teammates for Christmas, and in a way to honour his absence from the team at the SuperCopa in Jeddah, the squad brought with them a golf club.

Don’t ask what they’ll do with it — we have no idea. One would hope they would bring it out, along with the Welsh flag, during celebrations should they lift the trophy on Sunday.
