Gareth, say sorry
Three points that keep us alive in a fight many think is already over. That’s the good thing about Real Madrid’s DNA: we never give up. If on Saturday we win the Clásico in LaLiga we’ll be six points behind Barcelona with 12 games to play. Dreaming costs nothing. That’s why Bale’s unacceptable gesture after scoring the winner against Levante hurts and enrages me even more. The great master Di Stéfano once said: “no player is better than all of them together”. Can someone translate it into Welsh please.
Bale unhappy about being a substitute
It seems like Gareth feels that being made a substitute is an attack on him without limit. It means he feels entitled to come up with such an ugly gesture towards a teammate (Lucas Vázquez in this case) who only wanted to do something as serious as celebrate the winning goal for his side: 1-2.
The difference here is that Lucas loves Madrid, he respects the sacred badge and knows the value of that goal at a critical moment in the match against Levante. Bale was playing another match: HIS OWN. He only wants to ensure his anger over being on the bench takes centre stage. For the Welshman being a substitute is disrespectful of his big name status. What Bale needs to be told is that at Real Madrid you write your CV afresh every week. Nobody lives off the memories. It’s bad enough not to celebrate a goal for the club, but it’s far worse to push away a teammate, and deny him a celebration shared with every Real Madrid fan. Bale, apologise, please.
