As Bale opted not to answer, Wales manager Robert Page did the needful on behalf of the star player. Page reckoned Bale was disappointed like any other player and hence was not in the right frame of mind to answer the question on his future.
“Like any other player in the changing room right now, he is disappointed. Why would he want to answer a question about his future?.”
“For me it’s an insensitive question. What is the point of asking that when he’s just come off the pitch after a defeat? Emotions are raw, so he’s done the right thing by walking away and gathering his thoughts,” added the manager.
With the win, Denmark march into the quarter-finals. For the Danish team, Kasper Dolbergwas the star as he scored a brace in the win.
