Madrid, May 25 (IANS) Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has taken a dig at cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid, saying none of their footballers will make it to Real’s starting XI.
The two Madrid giants are set to battle it out in the Chamipions League final in Milan on Saturday.
Atletico finished just two points behind Real in the La Liga this season. Antoine Griezmann was the star of Atletico with 32 goals in all competitions.
“To me, no Atletico player would feature in Real Madrid’s team,” Bale was quoted as saying by goal.com.
The Welshman had netted against Atletico when they had met in the Champions league final in 2014. This year he has scored 19 goals in 30 games but has failed to get on the scoresheet in the Champions League.
