Ronaldo and Bale clash in Real Madrid training

Published Add your comment

All the questions of how Cristiano Ronaldo would co-exist with Gareth Bale at Real Madrid have now been answered: contentiously.

A recent training video shows Ronaldo going for a rather harsh tackle on the current world's most expensive player, while notorious bad boy Pepe watches and laughs.

Perhaps it was all meant in jest - a 'welcome to the team' tackle. Bale would get his revenge later, with a nutmeg on Ronaldo.

Whether it is a one-time occurrence or not, the Madrid hierarchy must be worried when that many million pounds collide in something as minor as a training session.

Boss Carlo Ancelotti will certainly be hoping the pair - worth a combined £165 million - can keep their egos in check and perform harmoniously for Madrid.
