Where have we heard this before? Cristiano Ronaldo was angry because Gareth Bale did not pass to him.
Last season Bale and Ronaldo stories were a feature of Real Madrid's campaign. The clubs fortunes descended into turmoil after the New Year and left many questioning the relationship between the two players.
Los Blancos made a flying start to the season and were on course to complete a treble as we moved into 2015, however they dropped off and ended season without a trophy, leading to Carlo Ancelotti's sacking.

Much of the talk surrounded the perceived lack of relationship between the two most expensive players in world football with Bale taking the majority of stick from angry Real Madrid fans, often being booed by the home supporters.
Rafa Benitez was drafted in with the prime objective rekindling the partnership the players developed during Bale's first season in Spain.

However it took just 12 minutes of the new season for the same old problems to come flooding back for Madrid. The ten times Champions League winner were held 0-0 by Sporting Gijon, and there was one particular moment that irked many people.
Having latched onto a Luka Modric pass Bale rounded Gijon goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar and tried to force the ball in from the tightest of angles while Ronaldo was in acres of space at the back post. Jese Rodriguez was also in space at the edge of the box.
The three time Ballon d'Or winner was visibly annoyed with the Welshman's decision, not just because it was Bale, but because he was in a better position to open the scoring.
This moment proved to be Real's best chance of the game as they failed to breakdown a resolute Gijon defence, and Madrid's lack of goals in pre-season transpired to their league form.
It was a difficult situation for Bale who was moving at such a pace he hardly had time to look up and spot Ronaldo and was well within his rights to go for goal.
But that didn't stop Twitter users blaming Bale once again as Madrid's season kicked off much like the last one ended. However many were also on hand to support the Welsh star and even blame Ronaldo, I know, SHOCKING!
Will Gareth Bale be a success at Real Madrid? Or is he doomed to fail? Have your say below!
