Real Madrid release awkward video of Gareth Bale trying to talk to his teammates

FBL-ESP-LIGA-REAL MADRID-CELTA

Gareth Bale probably wasn’t too thrilled to see Zinedine Zidane return as Real Madrid manager earlier this month.

The Welshman didn’t exactly see eye-to-eye with Zidane at the Bernabeu and was left on the bench for his final game in charge last season - the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Bale came off the bench to score twice - including a sensational overhead kick - as Real beat Liverpool 3-1.

And after the game, Bale admitted that he wasn’t too pleased to be named on the substitutes bench.

"Obviously I was very disappointed not to start the game," he said afterward. "I felt I deserved it but the manager makes the decisions. I need to be playing week in, week out and that has not happened this season."

But Real fans just haven’t taken to Bale since his arrival from Spurs in 2013 - that’s despite him scoring 102 goals for the club.

And one of the main reasons he hasn’t felt at home in Spain is the fact he’s yet to learn Spanish.

Recent comments from Marcelo went some way to explain how little Spanish Bale actually speaks.

"[I was also sad] with [the departure of] Kiko Casilla, who was sitting next to me [in the dressing room]," Marcelo explained.

"Every day I was saying, 'How are you Kiko, how are you doing?' and now I have no one next to me.

"On the other side I have Bale, but Bale does not speak [Spanish] as he only speaks English and we talk with gestures and I say, 'Hi, hello and good wine.'"

Is that really true?

Well, Real Madrid posted a video on the club’s official social media page that suggests that's definitely the case.

In an awkward conversation during a flight, the likes of Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Bale are standing around answering random questions.

What follows shows just how little Bale fits in.

The video includes Bale saying: “I don't have a clue what you've said” to one of Modric’s questions and Marcelo seemingly patronising the winger by slowly saying “Do you understand?”

BALE TRIES TO TALK TO TEAMMATES

Take a look:

It certainly doesn’t paint Bale in a good light, does it?

In truth, he’s been in Spain for almost six years now and can barely understand a word.

It’s no wonder some of his teammates and the Real fans have lost patience...
