Bale 'missing Real... but not too much'


Gareth Bale took a swipe at Real Madrid when asked by John Rahm if he misses his former club.

Recently-retired Bale, 33, spent nine years at the Bernabeu following a then-world record £85million move from Tottenham in 2013.

Bale scored 106 goals in 258 games, winning three LaLiga titles and five Champions Leagues.

But despite his stunning performances, the forward endured a rocky relationship with the club and their supporters.

After his passion for the Spanish giants was questioned by fans, Bale infamously posed with a sign saying: “Wales, golf, Madrid - in that order.”

In 2021 Bale was abused by a group of supporters who gathered at Real’s training ground.

And after departing the Bernabeu for a move to LAFC last summer, Bale admitted he was enjoying feeling loved again by a new fanbase.

But the Wales legend has now aimed another dig at Real while playing golf with iconic putter Jon Rahm.

The Spaniard asked Bale whether he missed playing for the European heavyweights.

And Bale responded: “I miss them a little… but not too much.”
