In contrast, Gareth Bale, the man specifically bought to replace the Portuguese have struggled all season and is now looking closer to the Bernabeu exit. The former Tottenham man has grown increasingly frustrated at the fact that the Bernabeu crowd never accepted him for who he is. They instead demanded that he be Ronaldo 2.0 or nothing.
