Gareth Bale was abused by angry Real Madrid fans as he left the club's training ground on Friday afternoon.

The winger was exiting Valdebebas when supporters confronted him, with one of them appearing to throw a pen at his car. Bale returned from international duty with Wales and is set to miss the next three weeks after picking up an injury during the week.

The 32-year-old picked up a calf injury during his 100th cap against Belarus. He has not featured for Los Blancos since the end of August because of a hamstring injury sustained in training.

A video released on social media shows the group of fans telling Bale where to go, and using the Spanish insult 'Maricon!', which is a homophobic slur.

Earlier this week, Marca journalist Jose Luis Hurtado claimed that Bale was making fun of Real Madrid due to his lack of enthusiasm for the club. Hurtado wrote: "Bale is making fun of. It's nothing new. He has been doing it for years.

"It is not known whether he is a golf player who plays football in his spare time or if he is a footballer who plays golf in his spare time."

Bale is out of contract in the summer and is widely expected to leave the club on a free transfer. A return to the Premier League, where he spent the last season on loan with Tottenham, is being touted, although, Bale himself has not commented on his future yet.
