Gareth Bale’s agent has launched a stinging attack on Real Madrid supporters for their treatment of his client.
The Wales star has been received plenty of grief from Real fans in recent weeks, culminating in Bale being jeered when he was replaced during Saturday night’s defeat to Barcelona.
His agent, Jonathan Barnett, says Bale deserves far greater respect than he is getting.
Barnett told Sky Sports News: “This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth’s goals for years to come. Frankly they should be ashamed of themselves.
“Gareth deserves the greatest of respect. The way the Real fans have treated Gareth is nothing short of a disgrace.
“In the six years he has been in Spain, he has won everything. He’s one of the best players in the world. Those fans should be kissing his feet.
“Despite what the Spanish press are reporting, he’s happy, he speaks reasonable Spanish and there is no problem between him and the rest of the Real players. The people writing these things know nothing about him.
“There has not been one single discussion about Gareth leaving Madrid. He isn’t going anywhere this summer.
“Despite what’s been reported, he’s content, he wants to stay at Real and they want him.”
