Spanish Media Hit Back At Real Over Gareth Bale’s Back Injury

Spanish paper Marca hits back at Real claims that Bale’s back complaint is “extremely common among football players”

Gareth Bale is at the centre of a bitter row between Real Madrid and the Spanish media over his back injury.

Leading daily Marca has claimed £86million Bale, the world’s most expensive player, has a slipped disc and needs surgery.

Real issued a statement on Saturday denying the claim. The La Liga giants have insisted that although Bale has a “small chronic disc bulge” it is “extremely common among football players.”

Marca, however, have quoted a doctor to back up their claim that the injury is more serious than the club are letting on.

Dr Avelino Parajon said: “If Real Madrid have signed Gareth Bale knowing about this protrusion, they have committed an error.”

Bale scored on his debut for Real , away to Villarreal, but has played only twice since.
