GARETH BALE was abused by a small group of Real Madrid fans at the club’s training ground on Friday.
And one furious Real supporter appeared to throw a marker pen at Bale’s car window with cries of ‘F*** you’ heard as he was leaving the Valdebebas facility.

Bale returned from international duty with Wales with another injury and that appears to have angered a section of the Bernabeu support.
The 32-year-old has a calf injury which he sustained on his 100th cap against Belarus last Saturday and is set to be out for at least three weeks.
Bale missed the 1-1 draw with Belgium as Robert Page’s side clinched a home World Cup play-off semi-final in March.
The forward has not played for Real since the end of August after a severe hamstring injury sustained in training with his club.
Pundits in Spain have been angry with Wales captain Bale for appearing to put his country ahead of his club.
Bale wound up the Real supporters in 2019 after the Dragons qualified for Euro 2020 by holding up the flag which read: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”
The Welshman joined Los Blancos in 2013 following a then world record £85million move from Tottenham.
Since then he has amassed a total of 106 goals and 68 assists in 254 appearances, which have led to two LaLiga titles and four Champions League trophies.
However, Bale was frozen out by former manager Zinedine Zidane and was sent back on loan to Spurs last season.
But Carlo Ancelotti’s return to the Santiago Bernabeu led to a revival until his injury last summer.
The ex-Tottenham star is out of contract at the end of the season.
