The deterioration of Gareth Bale’s relationship with Zinedine Zidane continued last night after the Welshman unfriended his manager on Facebook.
Bale took the drastic step after the Frenchman revealed how his £550,000-a-week star refused to come on as a substitute during Real’s 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich in Sunday’s International Cup clash.
The Welsh winger was so incensed by his manager’s remarks that he felt compelled to remove him from his friends list.
The 30-year-old set tongues wagging yesterday evening after signalling his intention to have a cull in a cryptic post which read: ‘Time for a clear out me thinks’ (which he concluded with several snake emojis).
Top of the comments section underneath the cryptic post was Sergio Ramos, who wrote: ‘Just right hun. Keep your head held high. Hope I survive the cull’, before signing off with some praying hands.
The former Tottenham ace spent several hours staring at Zidane’s Facebook profile with his thumb hovering over the unfriend button before finally plucking up the courage to unceremoniously dump the 47-year-old World Cup winner.
‘Zizou’ made the shocking discovery while indulging in his morning ritual of taking a dump and having a little creep on his phone.
‘At first I thought the big drama queen had deactivated his account again’, explained the former Juve star.
‘But when I searched his name and clicked on his page, there it was, the big f**king ‘Add Friend’ button’.
‘So, I did what any grown man would do in my situation and blocked the c**t’, he added.
The very public fallout between the pair means Bale faces the unenviable choice of seeing out the remaining 3 years of his £45 million contract playing golf in the Madrid sunshine or earning £1m-per-week tax free in China.
‘Life’s so unfair sometimes’, sobbed Bale while blowing his nose into a bundle of £50 notes.
‘Once that Portuguese walking waxing strip f**ked off to Italy, I was supposed to be the ‘Alpha Bale at this club’.
An upset Bale then spent the morning sharing memes of quotes about friendship falsely attributed to Drake and Tupac.
Close friend Luka Modric spotted his team mate’s cryptic cries for help and encouraged the Welshman to get in touch with a comment which read: ‘PM me chick’.
