Ian Wright has slammed the “disgusting” treatment of Tottenham Hotspur target Gareth Bale in Spain. as he told ITV Sport.
The Real Madrid forward scored a brace for Wales on Thursday to help his country reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Bale’s contract at Madrid expires in the summer and if Wales reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the 32-year-old will need to find a new home to play his football for next season.
There have been suggestions the flying striker, who was on loan at Spurs last season, could return to north London. as reported by TuttoMercatoWeb.
In truth, he did that ahead of last summer’s belated European Championships, so it’s logical that it could happen again.
Nonetheless, after Spanish newspaper Marca labeled Bale a ‘parasite’ and accused him of ‘sucking away’ Real Madrid money, as quoted by the GuardianWright issued this response on the player.
“I don’t think you can question what it means to him to play for Wales,” Wright said.
“He shows up to them whatever happens, in his state of mind and how they (Real Madrid) treat him there.
“We’re talking about someone who has won the Champions League four times with this club. We’re not talking about a player who went to this club and smokes cigars and chills.
“Yes, he plays golf, but so what? He comes with the business. If he’s playing for Wales, he’s ready to go. Disgusting what they said about him.”
From that rather outrageous solo goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final to his overhead kick in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
Bale has produced some outrageous moments in Madrid’s colors but in truth, he’s likely to be remembered more for the end of his Bernabeu tenure.
Wales meet either Ukraine or Scotland in June, with the winner stepping up to Qatar 2022.
If Wales fail, it will be interesting to see if Bale packs his football bag and retires, as ending your career with four Champions League medals around your neck isn’t too shabby.
