Italian happy with Bale despite Bernabeu boos.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has leaped to the defence of under-fire winger Gareth Bale after the Manchester United target was booed by his own fans again this weekend, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The Italian tactician insists he is happy with the Welshman’s performance, even though he was seen as missing some simple chances, which he also did in another recent home game.
Still, Real strolled to a 4-1 win over Real Sociedad, with Bale getting an assist for Karim Benzema along the way, and Ancelotti has attempted to play down speculation about the player’s future as whispers of interest from Old Trafford intensify.
“I don’t want anything more from Bale,” he said.
“He put in a great performance. “It is true that he missed a couple of chances but he also provided a great assist to Benzema.”
