On-loan Tottenham Hotspur superstar Gareth Bale has taken a sly dig at his parent club Real Madrid, with whom his relationship turned incredibly sour in recent years despite his early success in Spain.
Jose Mourinho has reintroduced the Welshman slowly since his loan return to Spurs, with the 31-year-old having featured just six times across all competitions so far this season.
While on international duty with Wales, Bale discussed his feelings about being back at the Lilywhites, saying it is good for him to be somewhere he is appreciated.

"It's nice to be back playing, nice to be at a place where I'm wanted, I feel loved," he said, according to football.london.
"I'm just getting my fitness back, and being back playing is what makes every footballer happy.
"I feel like I'm in a good place at the moment, there's still more to come, more to improve, and I'm looking forward to it."
Bale joined Los Blancos in 2013, and became Britain's most successful player in Europe's top five leagues as he lifted four UEFA Champions League trophies in seven years.
