About His Son

He was born on 16 July 1989 in Cardiff, Wales. His full name is Gareth Frank Bale, whereas his nickname is The Cannon.

In his youth career, he played for Cardiff Civil Service and Southampton. He debuted in his senior career with Southampton in 2006 and remained with the club for a year. 

In 2007, he joined Tottenham Hotspur and played with the club until 2013. He then joined Real Madrid and remained in the club until 2022. 

He debuted for the national team in May 2006 and became the youngest player to represent their nation then. He is the top goal scorer of all time in Wales, having scored about 39 international goals.

Why Gareth hates Real Madrid?

The rumors of a dispute between Gareth and Real Madrid started some time back. In 2020, the player was caught sleeping in the stand when the team was struggling on the field. 

He seemed unbothered with what was going on in the field. 

He even refused to travel to manchester for the knockout champions league game against Manchester City, saying he didn't want to play against the English club. 

He also left the stadium before the Copa Del Rey game ended. He didn't care when Madrid was losing, which made the fans stunned. 

When Madrid won over Barcelona, he did not even click a picture with the team. Things seemed worst when fans were booing and whistling him, yet he smiled and laughed at the antics of the fans. 

Many people blame the Spanish media for this haterade between the player and the club. Since he was the most expensive player of the time, if he didn't play well, he was targeted by the media.

Another reason is said to be the fans, as they were mean, brutal, and merciless to the player. Another reason might be the feud between Gareth and Zidane.
