Bale has been criticized by Real Madrid fans for his behavior and performance in recent seasons.

Real Madrid

coach Carlo Ancelotti has defended Gareth Bale, claiming that the Welsh star has won many honors for Los Blancos.

Bale, who spent last season on loan at Tottenham, has made just three appearances for his side this season, the same number as Wales. The reason for his numerous and long absences was the injuries he suffered during this period. Despite winning two La Liga titles, four Champions League titles and one Copa del Rey, fans are upset with his behavior and performance and have been widely criticized. Now Ancelotti is defending the Welsh star.

He told reporters:

"I'm not his father, firstly. It may be that Bale's last period was not good, but nobody forgets what Bale has done.

."In 2014 he helped us win the Champions League, the Copa del Rey, in 2018 he helped us win the Champions League against Liverpool.

"The fans are not forgetting this. He is not having his best moment, but we have to have faith. When he comes back from the national team, if he deserves to play, he will play."

Ancelotti added on Bale's current situation:

"He has trained well, but he is not called up. He goes to Wales and the national team will evaluate whether he can play or not. It will depend on how the player feels. They will decide there," he added.

"The important thing is that Bale is fine, but after two months out it is important what the player feels.

"If the national team calls him, we have to send him. We explain how the situation is and then Wales have a week to assess the situation. I think Wales are not going to take a risk."
