Ancelotti: Bale A Reason For My Real Madrid Exit

Carlo Ancelotti: Gareth Bale A Reason For My Real Madrid Exit

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 18, 2017 09:48 AM @KurtLaduma

Former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed how superstar Gareth Bale had a hand in his eventual exit from Los Blancos.

Most Expensive Champions League XI

Many people thought the Italian was hard done by when he was sacked by the Spanish giants, and Ancelotti recently revealed a story related to his dismissal unknown to most.

The Bayern Munich manager explained how Bale's agent had called Florentino Perez after his client was substituted in a match, which led to his relationship with the club president taking a turn for the worst.

"The CEO told me the president wanted to talk to me," he said in his book Quiet Leadership: Winning Hearts, Minds and Matches.

"When I went to his office, he told me that Bale had called him. I had replaced him on January 4 (against Valencia).

"Bale's agent had complained. The president told me what he was going to do.

"Since then, the relationship with the president changed and has not been the same."

6 Forwards Linked With Man Utd

Ancelotti won four trophies during his time with Real, including the coveted UEFA Champions League. 

Do you think Perez is too involved at Real? Let us know in the comments section below.

@Diketso Senyane It took Madrid over 10 years before they won again back in 2014. During that period, 3 different teams from the EPL won the trophy while only 1 team from La Liga did. There's no disputing the fact that Madrid are the best with 11 titles, but they're not infallible. I'm not a fan (I'm a Chiefs fan) but they're amongst the teams I enjoy watching.

People getting worked up over nothing. Agents don't have to receive instruction from player for them to act stupid.

@GLetsoko but how many clubs from the EPL actually win the champion's league title,probably once in a decade.For Real Madrid that is poor standards.Real Madrid wants to win the champion's league every second year at least.
