Gareth Bale's agent has criticised Real Madrid's supporters for the "disgusting" treatment over the last few years.
The Welshman has often be subjected to icy reception from the supporters at the Santiago Bernabeu, especially in recent years due to his affiliation with the national side.
The reception still comes as a surprise to the neutrals after helping the club win four UEFA Champions League titles since 2013 while scoring some impressive goals along the way.
“I never speak for him. I speak for myself. They are my thoughts and not the thoughts of Gareth Bale. I don’t speak in the name of Gareth Bale.”
“I think the fans treated him in a disgusting way. Gareth Bale was fantastic for Real Madrid. Look at all the things he won with them, and the goals that he scored.
“And they have treated him fairly? no.”
Bale is in the final year of contract with the Spanish giants, but there has been no update on where he will end up playing next season.
