London, Oct 13 (IANS) The agent of Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Jonathan Barnett, has spoken about the relationship between the Welshman and his Portuguese teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and noted that they are “complete opposites” but there is “no hatred” between them.
In an interview published on Monday in The Guardian, Barnett stated that the players “don’t go out eating every night together, but it’s fine, reports Efe.
“There’s no hatred there. Gareth is a quiet guy. But I think Gareth can learn a little bit from Ronaldo as well, interacting maybe a little bit,” Barnett said.
The agent added that Bale “wants his own life and he lives it.
“Gareth is a great footballer, he doesn’t want anything more. He has some very good endorsements but his whole life is to be the best footballer in the world.”
Barnett also outlined his work as an agent and considered that there should not be interference by the parents of players he represents in their relationship with other players, and in return, he promises to take care of all aspects of football finances and be available for them 24 hours in case they have any problems.
