In the video Gareth Bale posted, he captioned it: “First ever hole-in-one @torreypinesgolf South course, hole no3 great commentary by @ollieschindler.”

While this was a massive feat for the former football star, some fans of his former club Real Madrid were not happy with the post.

One fan angrily commented on the video Bale shared, saying: “Bro we lost 4-0.”

The second fan who was already irritated commented saying: “Make a Madrid post rn before I lose my s***.”

As part of the angry comments, another one added: “I know he is retired I respect that but still.”

Some other Madrid fans were left pleading with the former Star to return to their club after Pep Guardiola’s men humbled them at the Etihad.

One of the pleading fans commented on the post saying: “Come back to Madrid.”

While another pleading fan added: “Missing you in Madrid.”

Gareth Bale won the Champions League for a record five times when he was still at Real Madrid.
