Wales manager Coleman: Bale will be unfazed by being booed


Gareth Bale will be unfazed by being booed once more by Real Madrid fans, according to Wales manager Chris Coleman.

Bale came in for criticism during Madrid’s 2-2 draw at home to Valencia on Sunday, jeered by some supporters.

“This latest episode won’t faze him at all,” Coleman said on Tuesday.

“People wondered how he would handle it when he went to Real Madrid [in 2013] because you are like a film star there, but he absolutely cruised through it.

“He’s answered all the critics. He’s matured in the last four or five years and come through it with flying colours.”
