Gareth Bale is getting trolled by Tottenham fans for his tweet after Real Madrid draw

It’s a great shame that Gareth Bale wasn’t fit enough to feature for Real Madrid against his former employers Tottenham on Tuesday evening.

The Welshman was injured during Madrid’s 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund last month and lost out in the race to be fit for this week’s huge Champions League clash at the Bernabeu.

Bale was subsequently forced to watch from the stands as the two sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw.

A Raphael Varane own goal midway through the first half handed Mauricio Pochettino’s side a surprise 1-0 lead.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo - who else? - levelled the scores just before half-time with a composed penalty.

Bale tweets after Real Madrid 1-1 Spurs

Although he missed Tuesday’s match, Bale is expected to be fit for the match against Spurs at Wembley on November 1.

But the 28-year-old, who spent six seasons with the north London outfit, showed his heart is now very much with Madrid judging by the post-match tweet he sent out.

“What an atmosphere tonight!” Bale tweeted, accompanied by a photo of the Madrid line-up. “Important point, can't wait for the game in Wembley ⚽ #HalaMadrid”.

No mention of Spurs’ performance, Gareth?

Tottenham fans seemed to be a little perturbed - and perhaps even a bit hurt - by Bale’s lack of recognition for the club where he first became a superstar.

They responded to their former hero’s tweet with countless “Who needs Bale when you’ve got Sissoko’ tweets.

Prior to this fixture, you would have assumed that Bale would receive an excellent reception from the Spurs faithful on his return to London.
