Reports: Cristiano Ronaldo Wants This Player Benched For UEFA Champions League Final

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants one of his teammates benched for the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff.

According to Diario Gol, Ronaldo and a few of his teammates do not want to see Gareth Bale start ahead of Isco in the UCL final against Juventus on 3 June.

The Portugal captain apparently feels the team is more balanced when the Spanish midfielder is on the field, and the club's recent strong performances seemingly support this theory.

Many reports suggest that Bale is expected to return from injury in time for the Champions League decider between Real and the Bianconeri.

The Welshman has struggled with a number of injuries this season, missing 27 matches for Los Blancos so far in this campaign.

Real captain Sergio Ramos is believed to be one of those who agree with Ronaldo regarding the Wales talisman, but it will be interesting to see if manager Zinedine Zidane shares the same view.

Bale has made 26 appearances across all competitions for Santiago Bernabeu club this season, scoring nine goals and assisting five further strikes.

Do you think Isco should start ahead of Bale in the UCL final? Have your say in the comments section below.

Bale has contributed nothing this season. If Real wants to win the champions league final they will bench him

@msipholar wa lekhosi my sentiments too but the problem is that he is not fit. Cnt b fit enuf after such a long layoff. Maybe coming in as a sub will do the trick.

Isco is doing very well I agree but it is not for the players to decide on this one it is the coach. These big players have too much say nowadays and it is not interesting anymore!! Let the coach decide please

@musah005 true Dawana. They must just share their opinion n maybe just do their sunday school question after that to ask "who should start, Isco or Bale?". This guys are trying hard to distab the unstopable Madrid train

@smartcoach if Messi & Ronaldo find out about SL puting words in their mouth. with the money they have they were going to sue and stop this soccer publication. SL is becoming like Daily Sun. CR7 can just with in his hearr n never tell people. Am tired of Messi/CR7 doesnt want or want the Team to buy so n so without their quote. I know yu sell more wt CR7 but stop lying thats disrespect. Talk about his form. He cant creat conflict or desrespect his mate like that
