A clip of Gareth Bale speaking about what it was like being a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo has gone viral on social media.
Bale and Ronaldo enjoyed major success together as teammates between 2013-2018 at Real Madrid.
Part of the legendary ‘BBC’ attacking triumvirate, which also included Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo terrified a number of teams in La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the UEFA Champions League.
Bale always seemed happy with the fact that Ronaldo was the club’s main man. The Welshman is different in personality compared to his former teammate.
Bale recently caused a stir when he named Lionel Messi, rather than Ronaldo, as the best player ever to win the Champions League.
And the 33-year-old, who announced his retirement from football in January, has revealed what it was like playing alongside Ronaldo.
Speaking on Martin Borgmeier’s YouTube channel at the BMW International Open Pro-Am golf tournament, Gareth Bale was asked: “How was Ronaldo?”
The Welshman replied: “He was actually okay. He had his moments. “For example, if we win 5-0 and he didn’t score, he comes in and throws his boots like he’s angry.
“It’s like your team winning in the Ryder Cup but you didn’t get a point so you are angry. “But he was a nice guy, nothing wrong, we didn’t really have any problems.
“A lot of people could be scared of how he is but if you’re not then it’s fine.”
Bale was then asked: “When he won all those Ballon d’Or, did he say thank you to the team?”
Bale’s response was telling: “I dunno… I think he did but…”
He added: “Yes, he did,” before pointing at the camera next to him and laughing.
