Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has called on the Spanish club’s fans to stop booing Gareth Bale.
The Wales forward received a mixed reception coming on as a substitute in a 3-1 win over Real Sociedad.
It was his first Real appearance in seven weeks after his controversial ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid’ flag celebration in Cardiff.
- “There is too much noise with Bale. He wants to be with us and do it well,” said Zidane.
- “I hope this doesn’t carry on for the rest of the season.
- “We want the fans to be with us from the beginning to the end, but we cannot control that.”
- “I have not spoken to him [about the jeers], I have only congratulated him.
- “I can’t tell you if it’s unfair or not. Everyone can say what they want.”
