Rafa Benitez has claimed that there is no problem between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale both on and off the football pitch.
Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez has insisted there is “no problem” between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, said in an interview with the Guardian this week that “there’s no hatred” between Real teammates Ronaldo and Bale the Wales international, but that the pair do not spend much time together outside of football.
The duo have on occasion, struggled to form a lethal partnership on the field since Bale’s transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham in 2013.
But Barnett said the two Galactico signing get along fine, and Benitez added on Spanish radio station ‘OndaCero’ last night, as quoted by the Daily Mirror:
There is no problem between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
Both of them are very good players and both want to win. The Real Madrid dressing room is much better than people think.
Meanwhile,Rafa Benitez hits back at new Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce, who questioned the Spaniard’s influence when he was manager of Liverpool for their 2005 Champions League final comeback against AC Milan.
How many titles has Allardyce won? That tells you all.
Allardyce is what happens when you get a book in England… his opinion has little value.
Two weeks ago, Cristiano Ronaldo became the leading goal scorer in the history of Real Madrid after surpassing Raul’s record of 323 goals in a 2-0 win over Malmo in the Champions league.
