Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has launched a scathing attack on Real Madrid fans, saying their treatment of his player is “nothing short of a disgrace”.
Bale was jeered by the home crowd on Saturday when replaced by Marco Asensio in the 61st minute as Real suffered their second defeat to rival Barcelona in just four days.
Having watched Real suffer a third successive home defeat for the first time since 2004, the home fans turned on Bale who had touched the ball just 20 times in the game before being substituted. Barnett said: “This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth’s goals for years to come. Frankly they should be ashamed of themselves.
