Barcelona hailed as champions-elect after beating Madrid


Gareth Bale's agent has told ESPN FC that the Real Madrid fans who whistled the Wales worldwide when he was substituted in Saturday's home Clasico defeat to Barcelona are "a disgrace". As far as Jonathan Barnett is concerned, those supporters should be "ashamed".

Welsh forward Gareth Bale has endured a mixed spell in the Spanish capital, finding trophies, injuries and criticism in equal measure.

"The fans are a disgrace", he said.

The 29-year-old has had added pressure this season following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Ajax midfielder Dusan Tadic left the internet in awe with some exquisite skills as he provided two assists to help his team take a shock lead at Real Madrid in the Champions League.

"They will be speaking about him and his goals for years to come". "Those fans should be kissing his feet". Despite this, Bale's agent also continues to insist that his client will not be moving anywhere in the summer.

Bale's team-mate Luka Modric said the Welshman's achievements in Madrid should not be forgotten, even if he was "not in his best form".

It would be quite fitting to see a future Barcelona player cap off a miserable week for Real Madrid by helping knock them out of the Champions League.

Fellow Madrid daily AS wrote: "Madrid give up" on their front page, and also spoke of it being the end of an era for numerous club's players who appear to be beyond their best, such as Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Marcelo. It's happened to me in the past.
