  • Gareth Bale is still being criticized for not speaking Spanish.
  • Luka Modric reveals that Bale has no problems with the language.
  • The Welshman is just shy.
  • Modric likes him a lot and says they have a lot of similarities.

Luka Modric is very fond of Gareth Bale, they have a lot of similarities. And Modric denies his teammate has trouble speaking Spanish:

"Gareth and I are very similar. We're shy and sometimes don't talk a lot."

"Gareth speaks and understands Spanish and the atmosphere is good. He gets along very well with his team-mates and is happy to enjoy Madrid and the best club in the world."

"Of course everyone enjoys their own way and you have to respect their way. He is exemplary in his behavior. I get on very well with him."

The remark that Gareth Bale speaks Spanish might surprise her, but it really is an important detail. The player was heavily criticized not only for his performance but also for his attitude.

Some fans believe that Bale doesn't respect Real Madrid, his teammates and La Liga in general because he still doesn't speak Spanish after 6 years at the club.

But that's the lie. Alvaro Odriozola also confirmed earlier that Gareth speaks Spanish really well and communicates with the team without any major problems:

"Bale can speak Spanish perfectly. He's just embarrassed to use that language, which from my point of view is perfectly normal. "

The reporter then asks, "Are you speaking to him in Spanish?"

Odriozola: "Totally. I speak to him in Spanish and English. His commitment to the club is beyond question,he gave a lot to the club."

Additionally, about two years ago, Bale's teacher Michael Gomez revealed that the player is just scared of speaking Spanish:

"He has a better level of Spanish than he shows in interviews. He is a perfectionist and until he reaches a very good level he will feel that he is not perfect at it and he will take a short cut."

So it's not fair to blame the man for just being shy.
