Real Madrid players Gareth Bale and Jesé Rodríguez were reportedly attacked by their own fans outside the club’s training base, following the 2-1 clásico defeat to Barcelona.
After the team arrived back in Madrid on Sunday night, two fans repeatedly struck the cars of the two wingers after they refused to stop their vehicles to speak to the supporters outside the Valdebebas training complex, according to images captured by Spanish television channel Cuatro.
After looking threatening in the first half, in which he scored a correctly-disallowed goal, Bale was largely anonymous after the break, touching the ball just 16 times, including a shot that he dragged badly wide. Jesé came on as a substitute in the 80th minute and was unable to help Madrid score a late equaliser.
Shortly after the fans vented their anger at Bale and Jesé, Sergio Ramos confronted the supporters asking “What’s the matter? Do you think that’s the right attitude?” The defender also remarked that Real Madrid’s players had “left everything on the pitch”.
The defeat leaves Real Madrid four points adrift of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with ten league games remaining.
