JONATHAN VIERA DENIES CALLING GARETH BALE A MONKEY

UD Las Palmas star Jonathan Viera has denied he insulted Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale to provoke the Welshman into getting sent off.

The teams met a couple of weeks ago and Viera refuted claims made by El Confidencial via his official twitter account that he had verbally attacked Bale.

The newspaper claimed he had called Bale a “white monkey” and “simian”.

Viera wrote: “I want to say publicly that in no moment of the game, or afterwards, did I insult Real Madrid player Gareth Bale.”

After Bale kicked out at him and then pushed him he was sent off and Madrid drew the game 3-3.

Quiero decir públicamente que en ningún momento del partido ni posteriormente insulte al jugador del @realmadrid Gareth Bale
