With Gareth Bale, we?re talking about the wrong things






Gareth Bale?s time at Real Madrid is coming to an end, prompting a murky question: What exactly is the Welshman?s legacy at Real Madrid" It seems, regardless of whether the Welsh forward is willing to accept it or not, Gareth Bale?s time at Real Madrid has come to an end. His tenure at the Bernabeu has been exhilarating, frustrating, fruitful and largely ugly ? and that doesn't seem set to change this summer as his farewell has hit the small hitch of the player not actually wanting to go.
Even if Real Madrid don?t strike Bale?s name off their records this summer, it won?t change that fact that, barring a miracle, the 30-year-old?s time in the capital is up. Hence, as the media and the player continue the waltz they've been dancing for the last five years, we can begin to ask ourselves; what do we talk about when we talk about Gareth Bale" What is the Welshman?s legacy"
Generally scoring the winner in three major finals, one of those being your club?s biggest European final in a decade, ensures legendary status. However, the discourse surrounding Gareth Bale has mostly been about events and things said off the pitch rather than what has happened on it. It leaves the Welshman?s legacy in a strange place, especially when one digs a little below the surface of Bale?s media issues.
Something that has always struck me about Gareth Bale is the contempt he has bred by doing hardly anything. Bale has kept largely to himself since joining Real Madrid and there is hardly anything concrete regarding the Welshman?s lifestyle or attitude off the pitch. Perhaps its this lack of a public image that has borne the fact that such a negative one has been made to fill it. Nonetheless this premium of actual information, has allowed a characterization of Gareth Bale to be built out of the things said about and around the Welshman rather than anything he himself has said.
It?s an image made from a media who clearly don?t like Bale and have pitched him as distant, lazy, and reluctant to embrace Spanish life while many of his team-mates have either clumsily or purposefully confirmed that characterization of Bale. Throughout this whole affair, Bale himself has been a spectator. Whether he actually can?t speak Spanish or is just too shy to use it, the 30-year-old only stays in his own public image, and it?s through his confrontational agent who has largely only given the Spanish media ammunition, that has made the situation worse.
The atmosphere surrounding Bale has become so toxic that when information about his actual lifestyle does come out, they are used as weapons to reaffirm the image that has already been made for him. Never has the fact that a player plays golf in his free time or that he goes to bed early been made as big an issue as it has in the case of the Welshman.
It is a truly unique and rather depressing state of affairs and there is only one obvious reason as to why things have ended this way: his injuries. Perhaps the fact that...
