Former Los Blancos player Uli Stielike has blamed Real Madrid doctors over Gareth Bale’s injury, according to report.

Bale injured his calf on Thursday after a lengthy lay-off which ruled him out until Christmas, he will definitely miss the Madrid derby on next Saturday.

Stielike scored 51 goals in 338 games for Real Madrid during his stint with the club.

He told AS: "Man, it's a shame because being at 100 percent physically he forms a perfect attack with Cristiano (Ronaldo). Of course, it is also painful for the club, because it has paid a lot of money for a player who they cannot put on the field.

"There is increasing pressure towards the player. The problem I see in clubs is that doctors do not accept having opinions from other specialists. If as a club I have a player who is worth a lot and in my house, they do not hit the spot, I'll have to go somewhere else, or two, to find the best. And do not be ashamed of it, because, in the end, it's your capital, your money."

Asked if Bale lacks courage with his injury problems, Stielike added: "I don't know. (Arjen) Robben was injured a lot in Madrid and Bayern recovered him. There he played many more games than with Madrid. The same is necessary to look for the reason for that fact.

"Let him open the door, visit three or four trusted doctors. And if three of the four coincide, go that way.

Real Madrid has lost their patience on the Welsh forward and he is being subjected to summer exit next year.
