Real Madrid star player, Gareth Bale in an interview with The Times, says he and the Portuguese star are always misunderstood. He says he is fine with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Welsh super-star also added that he has never had an argument with him and that the current coach, Zinedine Zidane has clearly defined roles for both of them.
“He speaks English, which helped me when I first got here,” said Bale. “We also have that link from the Premier League. We get on really well.
“The press make a lot of things that maybe we don’t but we get on fine. We’ve never had a problem. I’ve never had an argument with him.
“He’s a very, very passionate person on the pitch – everyone knows that. He’s very determined. People sometimes seem to take that the wrong way. We haven’t had a problem,” the former Spurs and Southampton right winger said.
The 26-year old player scored a brace in the crucial game against Rayo Vallecano where the Spanish giant won 3-2 to keep the title hopes alive even as the season winds down. The Cardiff-born player spoke on the division in set-pieces by the coach. Bale said:
“It’s on the board. Free-kicks left side him, free-kicks right side me. Every game, so we know exactly what’s what.”
On Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League game against Manchester City, the player said:
“I was chatting to him about that.
“He’s going to get a lot of abuse. He thrives on it. That’s exactly what he said. It’s normal for him wherever he goes.
“It’s normal for most of us – wherever we go, we get booed and whistled. We thrive on things like that. It helps us a bit more. We like to keep people quiet.”
