Gareth Bale Hilariously Trolled By Real Madrid's Mariano For Love Of Golf

Real Madrid striker Mariano has hilariously trolled Gareth Bale for his love of golf in Real Madrid training.

Bale misplaced a pass in Madrid training and Mariano immediately jumped at the chance to mock his team mate.

The striker made a motion of swinging a golf club at the Welshman, implying he should have struck the ball like a golf ball.


The jibe comes after a week which saw Bale emphatically celebrate his love for golf at the expense of his club.

The 30-year-old celebrated with his Wales teammates after qualifying for Euro 2020 and held a flag reading 'Wales, Golf, Madrid, in that order'.

It went down a storm in Cardiff but the Spanish press have raged at the tongue-in-cheek flag.


Bale has frequently been criticised by pundits as well as team mates for his love of golf.

His retort on Tuesday evening saw Spanish outlet Marca plaster their front page on Wednesday morning with 'Disrespectful. Wrong. Ungrateful. In that order'.

The flag is in response to former Madrid striker Predrag Mijatovic who made the comment about where his loyalties lie.


"The first thing he thinks about is Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid. I haven't spoken to him but that's how he comes across."

The former Tottenham winger has been an outcast for a while in the Spanish capital and was on the brink of a move to China in the summer.

But Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is keen to stay pleasant with Bale to get the best out of him while he's a 'Los Blancos' player.


He joined Real Madrid in 2013 from Spurs for a then world record fee of £86 million.

Despite winning a multitude of trophies including four Champions Leagues, he has never been fully embraced by the Santiago Bernabeu faithful.

He has been linked with a return to North London in recent days after Jose Mourinho's appointment at Spurs.

It's safe to say that his days in Madrid are close to coming to an end.
