Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett has said that his former club, Real Madrid, should be kissing the ground he walks on.
He stated this after Bale made a loan move to Tottenham Hotspurs a few days ago.
He said: “I’ve been his agent since he was a very young boy, and I am so proud of him.
“Not just for his achievements and everything else, but because he has become a great man. He’s never said anything wrong, he’s never done anything… his life has been exemplary really.
“When he came here one of the newspapers started writing articles about his family and his wife’s family in the papers – that is scandalous.
“This country should be very proud of him, Great Britain should be very proud of him. Stop knocking him and write what he’s done and what he’s achieved.
“It’s very annoying, and it’s the same with Real Madrid and what he’s achieved for them.
“They should be kissing the floor he walks on.”
He added that Bale could sign a permanent deal with Tottenham once th loan deal expires.
Barnet said: “It was a build up of clash of personalities, a build up of not being supported, it was many different things.
“For somebody who has done as well as he has for Real Madrid, he didn’t get the respect he deserved and that was a big problem.
“For seven years everybody’s been saying Gareth Bale doesn’t speak Spanish – Gareth Bale speaks Spanish! Everybody’s been saying Gareth Bale doesn’t care about football – Gareth Bale loves football, he’s never fallen out with football.
“He may have fallen out with other things, but not playing football, and I hope back at Tottenham people will realise and stop talking complete and utter rubbish.
