Casemiro urges fans to remember the titles Gareth Bale brought Real Madrid


CASEMIRO showed his support for Gareth Bale as he urged fans to remember the titles he has won with Real Madrid.

The Welshman has won 14 trophies with the Spanish giants since he joined from Tottenham in 2013 for £85million.

Bale has lifted four Champions League titles, a La Liga crown, the Spanish Super Cup, three UEFA Super Cups and FIFA’s Club World Cup four times.

But even his own fans have turned him against this season as he has failed to live up to their high expectations at the Bernabeu.

The 29-year-old has scored 14 goals and made four assists in 27 starts this season,  but has still been regularly booed by his own fans.

Madrid midfielder Casemiro has called for fans to stop targeting the Welshman.

On the club website, he said: “He’s an experienced player who can deal with anything.

“Eventually, you get used to the pressure and you have to be able to cope with it if you’re at the biggest club in the world.

“When they jeer our team-mate, they’re jeering all of us because we think as a group and as a squad.

“It affects that player, but it affects all of us too.

“Perhaps he’s not had his best season, but this club demands the best and we can’t forget he’s brought us many titles and scored lots of goals.”

Bale has been linked with a summer move away from the Bernabeu – but not many clubs could afford his £650,000-a-week wages.

Zinedine Zidane refused to rule out the 29-year-old leaving at the end of the season after he was taunted by fans earlier this month.
