Bale hits back at Real Madrid boo boys


With Gareth Bale having endured a frosty relationship with Real Madrid's supporters over the years, the Wales superstar has now hit back at the club's notorious boo boys.

Bale's struggles to win over the Los Blancos fanbase since his €100.8 million (R2.2 billion) move in 2013 have been well documented, and the 31-year-old has now criticised the club's supporters for the way they have treated him and some of his teammates.

"We get a lot of pressure every game. If you don't play well, there's scrutiny," the Welshman told the Erik Anders Lang Show.

"I've had 80 000 people in a stadium whistle at me because I haven't played well. I've had it a few times! It's not nice and it doesn't do your confidence any good either. This is the biggest question and I just don't get it.

"You would expect that, if you're not having a good time on the pitch, your fans would get behind you and try to help you do better because it'll make them happy. But it seems that they do the opposite.

"They whistle you, which consequentially makes you feel worse, you lose your confidence, you play worse and then that makes them even more upset."
