After Tuesday’s victory, the Welsh star was seen celebrating in front of a flag that will be seen as provocative by his club side
Tipped to leave Madrid and criticised for his priorities amid his love for golf, Wales fans have adopted the chant, “Wales, golf, Madrid”, which has been heard during the international break.
And on Tuesday, Bale was seen celebrating in front of a Wales flag with the words: “WALES. GOLF. MADRID… IN THAT ORDER”
The words became famous when former Real striker Predrag Mijatovic said Los Blancos were third on Bale’s priorities behind his national team and playing golf in his spare time.
“I think Gareth Bale is a very particular kind of person,” Mijatovic said.
“I don’t know him personally, but from what I’ve read of the comments he has made, he seems quite a particular type, which might mean he comes across as being a bit strange.
“But to have someone like that at the club, who they say isn’t integrated and has other, more important worries than his own team and his club… the first thing he thinks about is Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid. I haven’t spoken to him but that’s how he comes across.”
When asked about the Wales chant in a recent press conference, Bale admitted that found it entertaining.
“I’ve heard it, especially when I was on the bench and when I came off, and the boys were laughing,” he told Sgorio Cymru.
