Patience runs out for Bale inside Real Madrid locker (and board) room

The patience of Real Madrid players regarding Gareth Bale's fitness problems is on the brink of running out.

Bale's injury woes are now beginning to grate, particularly as whenever he is fit he is rushed back into the line-up by coach Zinedine Zidane.

The Welshman is currently sidelined with a calf strain and Okdiario pundit Eduardo Inda says his teammates have had enough.

"There are complaints and moans because Bale has to play, the hard core of the dressing room is tired," he told El Chiringuito.

"He has been out 300 days since he arrived, last year he missed 28 games. He has exhausted the patience of the dressing room and the confidence of the leaders and the technical body."

It emerged this week that both Manchester United and Tottenham had informed Real they were willing to sign Bale - but only for a knockdown €60m.
