Gareth Bale: Ronaldo & Benzema was key reasons to join Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has sought to address rumors of a rift between Los Blancos and Cristiano Ronaldo.

They achieved four Champions League titles together in Madrid, forming an incredible streak of success for the club in the competition.

However, in a recent interview, Bale revealed that Ronaldo’s demeanor after a game was challenging to handle, especially when he didn’t score, regardless of the team’s victory.

The Welshman categorically denied any speculation of a problem between himself and Ronaldo. Currently, Bale has retired from professional football, while Ronaldo is playing in Saudi Arabia.

Bale said: “I never had a single problem with Ronaldo or anybody at Real Madrid.

“I don’t think I had an argument with anyone. Even through the hard times, it was good in the changing room.”

Thus, he added: “I really enjoyed my time there apart from a few moments where it was difficult on the pitch. I have no regrets and made the right decision.

“Cristiano and Benzema were big reasons why I joined Madrid, to play with them and the others like Modric, Alonso and later, Toni Kroos.

“I never wanted to be a Galactico. I just wanted to play and then disappear into the dark.”

At present, Bale is dedicating his attention to his lifelong passion for playing golf, indicating that a return to football is improbable for the 33-year-old in the future.

Furthermore, as part of his potential plan to pursue professional golf in the future, he recently participated in the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am line-up. He has another Pro-Am slot scheduled for September.
