Gareth Bale felt the anger of Los Blancos fans when he took the photo with a flag saying: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”

However, the other side of the story is that Bale did it to respond to the media.

Whatever the case may be, the Welshman helped his country qualify for the Euro 2020.

His national team manager, Ryan Giggs, was supportive of the team’s main star.

“I don’t know if Gareth had anything to do with it, obviously he was stood there, but I think far too much has been made of it,” Giggs said, as quoted by Goal.

Wales will face Italy, Switzerland, and Turkey in their European Championship group.
