Gareth Bale was caught leaving his side 3-4 defeat to Real Sociedad well before the final whistle.

Gareth Bale has not been selected for Real Madrid in four games now. The Welshman attended this evenings Copa Del Rey clash with Real Sociedad. However, the disconnect between him and his teammates is ever-present.

The evening was bust for Los Blancos. But with 15 minutes to go and his side trailing 1-4 Bale left the Santiago Bernabeu.

His side was fighting tooth and nail to try and get a result, but he had seen enough.

In fact, Bale missed his side attempt a miraculous comeback. The final score was 3-4 but he would not have known that until later.

I am sure there will be some defense or another for him from the club. But it is clear that Bale’s heart is not with Los Blancos.

AS pictured Bale leaving.

This kind of behavior coupled with incidents like the “Wales, Golf, Madrid in that order” debacle show he could not care less about Real Madrid.

The question is then why do he and his agent insist on staying?

What do you think?
