Gareth Bale was mocked by a section of his team mates in Friday training after posing with a flag that read "Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order." With ales after their Euro Qualification.
The pose in Wales celebration was not well received in the Spanish media, with the majority of voters in a MARCA poll stating Bale showed "a lack of respect for the club and fans."
But Bale appeared in a jovial mood while training in Madrid on Friday and was seen laughing as team-mate Mariano mocked him with a golf swing.
Speaking about the weekend events, Madrid boss said: "When you look at what Bale has given to this club, the fans, the real ones, the ones who feel the colours, the ones who are here for the club, the people who are going to come to the stadium, know that Bale is part of our team and they have to be with him because he is with us.
"Everyone has their own opinion and it's one thing that's already too much. You know the situation, he's been with the national team, he's been able to play and now he's with us. He's given a lot to the club and I'm only going to look at the sporting aspect, because outside there are a lot of comments and I'm not here for that. I know a lot of people are interested, but I'm not.
