Wales fans have a genius new chant for Gareth Bale following criticism he has received about his priorities.
Former Real Madrid player Pedja Mijatovic slammed Bale, criticising the Welshman's love of golf.
"The first thing he thinks about is Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid," he wrote in a column for Spanish outlet AS.
Mijatovic's scathing attack prompted traveling fans to come up with a brilliant new song for the Real Madrid forward; "Wales. Golf. Madrid."

Bale has been the subject of intense criticism for his comments prior to Wales' game against Azerbaijan. The 30-year-old admitted that he's more excited about playing for his country than Real Madrid.
"Yes definitely," he said when asked if playing for Wales gives him more joy. "It's like playing with your mates down the park on a Sunday.
"I've been with most of the older players since we were in Under-17s.
"It's normal - with Wales, I'm speaking my own language and feel more comfortable. I definitely have a bit more excitement playing with Wales.
"But it doesn't change what I give on the pitch. I always give 100% on the pitch wherever I am."
Wales, meanwhile, are just one win away from qualifying for Euro 2020. Ryan Giggs' side need to beat Hungary on Tuesday to seal second place in Group E.
