No Atletico player would make Real starting 11: Bale

Madrid, May 25 (IANS) Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has taken a dig at rival Atletico Madrid saying none of its footallers will make it into Real’s starting team.

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 with FC Barcelona becoming the champions. 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 on Wednesday.

Welshman Bale netted against Atletico when they had met in the Champions league final in 2014, which Real won 4-1.

This year he has scored 19 goals in 30 games but has failed to get on the scoresheet in the Champions League so far.
