Gareth Bale has dismissed suggestions of friendship unrest between himself and Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting they get on very well and have never had an argument.
Gareth Bale who scored a brace and helped Realmadrid to a vital 3-2 win against Rayo Vallecano was speaking in an interview, and he had nothing but praise for the former Ballon D Or holder “He speaks English which helped me when I first came here. We also have that link from the Premier League. We get on really well.The press make a lot of things that maybe we don’t but we get on fine. We’ve never had a problem. I’ve never had an argument with him. He’s a very, very passionate person on the pitch — everyone knows that. He’s very determined. People sometimes seem to take that the wrong way. We haven’t had a problem”.Speaking about taking of freekicks, Bale added: ‘It’s on the board: free-kicks left side him, free-kicks right side me. Every game so we know exactly what’s what”.

Bale also had nothing but kind words for current Newcastle manager, Rafael Bennitez, insisting he was a good listener and was always willing to help him, “i felt isolated out on the wing and I wasn’t able to do what I wanted to do and give my best for the club,’ explains Bale. ‘He [Benitez] listened to me, and gave me more responsibility which was what I wanted. I had a good relationship with him. He speaks very good English which helps me. I was able to speak to him a lot. We had things in common from working in England. I just enjoyed working with him”.
