Real Madrid are shaking up their squad, from the staff to the players. After fitness coach Antonio Pintus left, physics Victor Fonseca and Jaime Benito are being axed too. These exits have an affect on the dressing room heavyweights. Fonseca has a good relationship with Marcelo, but Benito is Gareth Bale’s man of confidence. He is a personal friend of the Welshman, they are very close.
Bale has invited Benito to his Wales game more than once and even dedicated him a goal at Anoeta against Real Sociedad. Benito was also the physio Kroos and Modric trusted too.
Despite the continuous claims from Bale and his agent that his future is at Madrid and he’s happy there, the team are trying to force him out.
