Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has dismissed criticism from Barcelona coach Tata Martino over their deal for Gareth Bale.

Martino rapped Real for paying Tottenham €100 million for the Welshman.

Perez countered: "He (Martino) is new here. He does not know what he's saying.

"Martino doesn't really know how transfers work here. It's easy for him to be a demagogue."
