Ex Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale has come out to joke that Jude Bellingham should be ready to be a puppet to last long at the club. He recently offered advice on how the English midfielder can succeed in the Spanish capital, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Bellingham must be ready to play the politics of being a Madrid player to last long in Spain, because failure to do so will bring a lot of backlash.
Bale added that Jude must also start learning to speak Spanish as he’ll get a lot of stick if that is not completed soon.
His words, “The biggest advice, play the game at Madrid. If you don’t play the game, do what the media want, speak to them, basically be a puppet, you do get a lot of stick… Speak after the games, make sure you speak in Spanish, do those kind of things.”
“You’ll see a lot of Galacticos, they act like Galacticos, they play the game of being at Real Madrid, that’s probably why it was at a bit of a downfall for me… I didn’t want to do it, I just wanted to play football and go home and that probably hindered me and that made them attack me a bit more.”
