Gareth Bale has once again spoken out about the sneer he received from Spanish media. The Welshman is blamed for not finding himself fit enough to play FC Barcelona in the lost Clásico (0-4), but played the stars of the sky against Austria with Wales on Thursday.
Via social media from Bale, his dissatisfaction with the way in which the Spanish medium Marca fillets him. “Fortunately, I have developed elephant skin, but that does not mean that articles like this do not cause any harm and the organizations and journalists who write this should be held accountable for that,” writes the Welshman on Twitter.
“Ive seen the influence media can have on people, Bale continues. “The media expects inhuman performance from athletes and are the first to cheer in when things go well. If things go wrong, however, they are also the first to filleyou directly and encourage anger and disappointment among the fans.
“Thats why I want to use my platform to change how we speak publicly about people and criticize them,” concludes Bale. “We all know who the parasites are.” Bale was the absolute star in the game between Wales and Austria on Thursday. The former Tottenham Hotspur player, among other things, shot a great hit from a free kick.
