Real Madrid acted badly on Bale says Tottenham boss

Posted on August 04, 2013 by admin

If there ever was a `special relationship` between Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur, supposedly agreed during the Luka Modric negotiations last summer, then it is now either very strained or broken altogether. The Spurs boss Andres Villas-Boas has hit out at his Madrid counterpart Carlo Ancelotti about the way the transfer of Gareth Bale to La Liga has been handled.

AVB feels that Ancelotti, or any of the staff and players at Madrid, should not have spoken publicly about the 24-year old Welsh international. It now seems almost certain that Bale will be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu this season after he stayed in London while his team mates travelled to play Monaco in a pre-season friendly yesterday. It was after this game, which the Premier League side lost 5-2, that AVB was asked whether he thought Ancelotti had behaved badly during the transfer saga.

The Portuguese coach replied, “I think so, in my opinion.

“Carlo is a person I appreciate a lot and we have great respect for each other, but bearing in mind this situation, they have decided to make it public.

“Normally in situations like this it is scrutinised by the FA with lots of care and attention. We have seen lots of people speak about a player that is not theirs and we are due some respect.

“These rumours of an imminent transfer are not true.

“We envisage the future with Gareth Bale, but we know that in football anything is possible.”

I feel a bit sorry for AVB, because he was apparently promised by the chairman Daniel Levy that Bale would not be sold. The problem is that Levy also promised Bale that he would not stop the player joining a big club if Spurs did not make the Champions League.
