Gareth Bale has revealed how he reacts angrily when Cristiano Ronaldo does not contribute to Real Madrid’s victories.

Speaking on Martin Borgmeier’s YouTube channel, Bell said: “Actually, he was fine. He had his moments. For example, if we win 5-0 and he hasn’t scored, he comes in and takes off his shoes like he’s angry. It’s like your team won the Ryder Cup but you didn’t score a point, so you’re angry.”
“Ronaldo is a good boy”
“But he was a nice guy, nothing wrong, we didn’t really have any problems. A lot of people might be intimidated by his behaviour, but if you’re not, it’s okay, I liked Tottenham more because it More of a family than Real Madrid and everyone is English. But in terms of football I liked Madrid more.”, concluded the Welshman.
Considered one of the greatest Welsh players of all time, Bell decided to retire in January 2023 at the age of 33 after playing for his country at the 2022 World Cup. At club level, he last played in MLS with LAFC.
The former Tottenham Hotspur star recently teamed up with Tom Holland and Ben Stokes for the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am in September.
