Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon expects Gareth Bale to leave the club this summer due to fans’ disappointment with his “lack of commitment”.Bale has been a target for Real supporters’ frustration as the team have endured a disappointing season, which plunged to a new low as they were dumped out of the Champions League by Ajax on Tuesday evening.
Despite having won four Champions League titles since joining Real from Tottenham for £85m in 2013, Bale’s image among Real fans has been damaged by speculation that he has failed to learn Spanish and chooses not to socialise with his team-mates.”It’s true that he wasn’t the leader people expected here after Cristiano (Ronaldo’s) departure,” Calderon said.
“He showed a lack of commitment. People are not happy – they saw how he shrugged off his team-mates when they went to celebrate a goal with him last La Liga match and also (his) injuries. “It’s a pity. I don’t see him here next season unfortunately.”
