Video: Cristiano Ronaldo goes in studs-up on Spurs old boy Gareth Bale
Welcome to Madrid.
Gareth Bale has been given a warm welcome to Real Madrid by the man he’s overtaken as the world’s most expensive footballer.
Cristiano Ronaldo went in studs-up on the former Tottenham player in what appeared to be a harmless game of piggy in the middle.
Bale skins Ronaldo with a cheeky nutmeg to evade what was a pretty naughty challenge to begin with. That prompted the Portuguese star to again lunge in on the new boy.
The Welshman appears to have a word with Ronaldo about the challenge, at which point Ronaldo seems to hold his hands up in apology.
And from another angle, showing just how hilarious Bale’s new team-mates thought the nutmeg on Ronaldo was!
