It will be interesting to see how long the Real Madrid fans decide to stay in the huff with Gareth Bale. Yes he did celebrate Wales qualifying with a flag that read “Wales-golf-Madrid – in that order” on it, but it was clearly a bit of fun.
It was also his chance to take a shot back at the Spanish press who have been so keen to put him down because of his love of golf.

He received a frosty reception at The Bernabeu tonight as he was jeered onto the pitch by the home faithful:

It seems they also decided to make their feelings known in the warm up as well:

If there’s any club in the world that loves drama then it’s Real Madrid. He might not even have to win the fans over, it could just be a case of waiting for someone else to do something wrong and letting them take the abuse instead.
