Gareth Bale has begun to worry his Real Madrid teammates with his selfish play and unwillingness to track back…
Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale is flattering to deceive this season, his goals and assists not enough to make amends for his selfish play and refusal to defend.

The Welshman was fantastic in his first season at the Bernabeu last year, scoring 22 goals in all competitions and providing nearly the same number of assists.
With five goals and three assists already, his numbers this campaign so far would suggest he is already on his way to improving on the previous year. Stats don’t tell you everything however, and the former Tottenham man’s lack of defensive work-rate and selfish style of play is starting to become a worry in the Spanish capital.
It’s hard to deny that Bale is a truly talented individual, but he seems to be trying to become an exact copy of Cristiano Ronaldo. While many may think it’s not a bad thing to want to be like arguably the best player in the world, a team full of Ronaldos probably wouldn’t function particularly well.
Canal+ show El Dia Despus did an analysis of his game, asking where the amazing Bale from pre-season went? His lack of strength and stamina, as well as his selfish style becoming a serious problem.
Manchester United have recently been linked with a move to bring him back to the Premier League. While on first glance that may seem like a fantasy that will never happen, if Bale continues to cause problems in Spain there could well be a possibility of the Welsh Superman being shipped back to England.
