Gareth Bale Smashed By Jorge Valdano To Cost El Clasico Hammering And Christmas Lopetegui His Job

Valdano threw the Wales international and claims that he has not lived up to the price he was brought to during his five-year tenure at Bernabeu. Gareth Bale is guilty of Sunday's El Clasico defeat and Christmas Lopetegui sacking, according to Real Madrid legend Jorge Valdano. Wales international lost Jordi Alba for the opening goal of Barcelona in the 5-1 press at Camp Nou and was largely ineffective on the other side.

Due to the crushing defeat, Lopetegui lost his job after watching the worst start for Los Blancos in 17 seasons. However, former sports director Valdano believes that Bale may blame his part in the former Spanish Chief's cover. "We are watching Bale because of his price, and this illusion has been created, he is a kind of world superstar," said Valdano, a former Real player and sports director. But the last five years do not reflect what Madrid paid for him."

Crystal Palace midfielder compares Wilfried Zaha with Gareth Bale

Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams has compared Wilfried Zaha with Wales compatriot Gareth Bale and does not believe the Eagles can afford to lose him during the summer transfer window. The Ivory Coast international was the standout performer for the Eagles last term with nine goals across all competitions and his performances proved key to them beating the Premier League drop.

Despite this, there has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of the former Manchester United but Williams remains hopeful that the attacker will stay put with the club, he told The Express: “I just think he'll be such a big miss [if he leaves].

Gareth Bale Hints At A Move Away From Real Madrid

Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has added to speculation that he will leave the Spanish club at the end of the season. The spectacular overhead kick from the Welshman was responsible for Real Madrid winning the 13th Champions League title by overcoming Liverpool in the final. Real Madrid were able to get three consecutive Champions League titles to create history. Bale has been an integral part of the Real Madrid setup since making the £ 85 million move from Tottenham a couple of years ago. However, his importance in the team has reduced drastically in the current campaign with the winger being consistently on the sidelines.

Bale has claimed a fractious relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane as being the reason for not playing regularly. He claims that he was injured for only six weeks of the campaign, but the French manager never put him in the team. However, Bale’s introduction into the game against Liverpool was the turning point and it helped Real Madrid get a memorable victory.
