If a team has Cristiano Ronaldo AND Gareth Bale in its ranks, then all involved should be the epitome of happiness – even the players in question.
However, it would appear that Ronaldo still has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to the Welshman. Several times last season he showed his frustration with he former Tottenham man in open displays of annoyance and contempt.
It’s rather unprofessional in truth. and the older he gets the less you’d hope that he’d do it, but it seems even in pre-season friendlies he cannot hide his feelings for Bale.
Against Roma in the International Champions Cup friendly at the MCG, both Ronaldo and Bale started in central roles as Karim Benzema made way to the bench. Real lost the game on penalties, but Spanish TV picked up a moment showing Ronaldo rolling his eyes yet again.
Afterwards, it was reported that Ronaldo was unhappy with Bale’s “individualistic performance”.
