Gareth Bale issues revealing update on Ronaldo relationship ahead of Man City v. Real Madrid

Speaking ahead of Real Madrid‘s Champions League match against Manchester City, Gareth Bale has insisted that he gets on well with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

It hasn’t always appeared as though the two Merengues superstars get on well, but the Welsh forward has confirmed that he and his Portuguese colleague have no problems.

“The media always want to believe things that aren’t there,” the former Tottenham Hotspur forward began, speaking to journalists as reported by Goal. “We get on very well.

“The important thing is football, we’re trying to win games and trophies together.”

While Bale, a similar player to Ronaldo, could have been considered as a potential successor to CR7 at the Bernabeu—and still may be—he hasn’t yet usurped the former Manchester United attacker as the leading man in the Spanish capital.

Indeed, Ronaldo has already bagged 16 goals in this year’s Champions League and is the competition’s top scorer—an ominous prospect for City ahead of Tuesday’s semi-final.

Putting his haul into context, Luis Suarez—the competition’s second most menacing forward—has scored just eight, half as many as his La Liga rival.

Ronaldo demonstrated his class in the quarter-finals, as he scored a hat-trick in the second leg to help Zinedine Zidane’s side overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg to advance to the final four 3-2 in aggregate.
