Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid performance

The ex-Spurs man had an off night in Los Blancos’ 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Tottenham fans watched on last night as two of their former players, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, started for Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals against Atletico Madrid.

The Welsh winger in particular is a player that the Spurs faithful seemingly keep a close eye on, especially given the contrasting fortunes he has had in the Spanish capital city this season.

Since the turn of the year the flying attacker has been made into something of a scapegoat by the Madrid fans and the Spanish media.

Bale had a chance to increase his popularity with the travelling support last night, with the former Spurs man racing through on the Atletico goal in the early exchanges, only to see a crucial effort saved by home custodian Jan Oblak.

Tottenham fans had mixed reactions to Bale’s performance, with their comments on Twitter ranging from pleas for him to return, comments about his hairstyle and his free-kick taking ability.

With the Madrid derby ending 0-0 and Bale failing to endear himself as Madrid’s hero, here are the best tweets from the White Hart Lane faithful.
