Tottenham‘s Gareth Bale appeared to call Son Heung-min ‘Karius’ after this team-mate dropped a ball during training.
Bale was referring to the events of the 2018 Champions League Final, where Loris Karius made two career-defining blunders to gift Real Madrid a 3-1 win over Liverpool.
The Wales captain scored a brace that night, including one where Karius dropped his long-range effort into the net.
Two years on, it’s clear that events in Kiev have left a strong impression on Bale and the winger is enjoying life back at his old club.
Having not played lots of football in recent years, he has had his commitment to the sport questioned by some critics but his commitment to training ground banter is one thing that can never be doubted.
