Barcelona boss Martino left with egg on face over Bale comments

Barcelona coach Tata Martino's comments about Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid have come back to haunt him. Martino was pressed yesterday about the controversy over Neymar's transfer fee - which is now claimed to have been €95 million.

"The issue should not affect the team. It's a matter for the management. We just play football," responded Martino.

When pushed about the comments he made when Real Madrid signed Bale - "He's a good player, but the numbers seem to me almost a lack of respect for the world in general " - Martino kept to the official club line: "There is no comparison, one cost €57.1 million and the other €95 million."
