Dimitar Berbatov has hit out at Gareth Bale for his recent behavior at Real Madrid. During the last couple of matches, the Welshman was seen behaving in the stands after Zinedine Zidane was left out of the side.
“Gareth Bale is again in the headlines for pretending to sleep in the stands when he found out that he was going to be an unused substitute against Granada, “Berbatov wrote in his Betfair column.
“I just couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I noticed him putting his mask over his eyes and pretending to be asleep. I can’t take it.
“Real Madrid is unprofessional and arrogant. I love watching Bale play and I can feel his frustration at not playing because I was in the same position, but that sort of reaction goes too far. Madrid wants to solve the Bale saga.”
“It’s not fair for Bale or the team and it’s poor publicity. I understand his pain, I was in his shoes of not playing because nobody actually offers him some answers, so you’re tempted to do those kinds of stuff, so I can’t help what he did. The only way is for Bale to quit Real Madrid. Bale will look for a solution, even though it’s a loan transfer. It was a power play, it was like he said: ‘Play me or I will do whatever I want. That is not sitting right with me.”
