Gareth Bale Mocks Son Heung-Min By Appearing To Shout 'Karius' During Tottenham Training
Gareth Bale appeared to poke fun at Tottenham teammate Son Heung-min with a cheeky reference to Loris Karius during a training session on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old Welsh winger, who returned to Spurs on loan in the summer, had an enjoyable time when he came up against Karius in the 2018 Champions League final.
Bale came off the bench and scored a sensational overhead kick before he grabbed his second as his long-range effort managed to slip through Karius' hands and into the back of the net.
Karius, who is currently on loan at Union Berlin, made a howler earlier in that Champions League final after his throw hit Karim Benzema and deflected into the back of the net.
Bale, Son and Co took part in Spurs' training session ahead of their Europa League clash against Royal Antwerp on Thursday.
Son managed to block a powerful shot and scrambled to collect the loose ball before appearing to let the ball drop to his feet.

Bale could be heard yelling "Karius!" as the 28-year-old South Korean forward attempted to regain control of the ball.
Son can be heard laughing in the footage before turning to harmlessly confront Bale and his other teammates.
Karius, 27, has seen his Liverpool career hit a brick wall since that fateful night in the Champions League final in Kyiv.
Liverpool splashed out a whopping £56m to sign Alisson from Roma in 2018 and Karius was dropped as the Reds' No 1.
The German has since been loaned out to Besiktas and Union Berlin, and it would seem unlikely he could dethrone Alisson as Liverpool's No 1 in the future.
Spurs will kick-off at 8pm UK time against Royal Antwerp on Thursday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
