El Confidencial: Real Madrid to fine Gareth Bale for early exit

09 Jan 2019

According to Spanish media outlet El Confidencial, the management at the Spanish club are to impose the financial penalty on the Welshman after he broke one of the internal rules. There is an obligation for players who are not selected to remain until the end of the game and the guidance is that they also stay close to the team before and after the match. This advice is in place to develop a collective spirit and sense of integration of all squad members.

The report also states that the winger’s own teammates had questioned his attitude the day before the 0-2 defeat to Imanol Alguacil’s side. More criticism of the Welshman was to follow with some suggesting he has not shown commitment or desire to even attempt to fill Cristiano Ronaldo’s boots.

In footage released by Spanish Tv programme El Chiringuito Bale was seen departing in his car in the 78th minute with his side trailing 0-1. He missed the 86th minute Rubén Pardo header for La Real which ended the contest.

Seen as one of the most experienced men in the Real Madrid squad, more is expected of Bale and his manager Santiago Solari said after the game that the issue would be deal with internally. It seems judgement has been passed.
