Gareth Bale has to play...'everyone loves him' says Real Madrid teammates

Gareth Bale's Real Madrid team-mates have backed the Welshman to succeed at the Bernabeu despite a summer of uncertainty in which he came close to leaving.

He fell out with boss Zinedine Zidane and almost headed to China on a stunning £1million-a-week deal, but was back in the team for Real's La Liga opener.

After a topsy-turvy summer, Bale has now been praised by two of his team-mates, with Casemiro and Thibaut Courtois sending Zidane a clear message about what the players think.

The Welshman played a vital role in Karim Benzema's opener and impressed throughout

Speaking after their 3-1 win over Celta Vigo, Casemiro said: 'He has given us titles, he's scored in finals and he has a lot of respect from us all.

'He has to play. He's a great player and is very important for us.'

It was much the same from former Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois, who added: 'He is an important player and played a great match.

My view: Zinedine Zidane has really been made to look like an unskilled coach, by Real Madrid management board, I think they're picking the team and it's kind of working. It is also strange that some of Gareth Bale's teammates who reportedly want him out because he doesn't socialise are now supporting him. What a turn around.
