Real Madrid will fine Gareth Bale after he left the Santiago Bernabeu in the 78th minute of the 2-0 defeat by Real Sociedad. The player was captured in his car leaving the stadium by El Chiringuito camaras.
Bale, injured, watched the game from the area reserved for players who aren't in the squad. With the score 1-0, he left the stadium even though he should have stayed until the end.
His team-mates did not like this and neither did the board. Per El Confidencial, they have asked for explanatons from the player and his team-mates criticised him for this in the team meeting the day after the encounter.
It's obvious that this stains an already disappointing season from the player. He is supposed to be the team's leader after Cristiano Ronaldo left but up and down form as well as injuries have held him back.
