Gareth Bale admits his confidence has been shaken by being booed by his own fans at Real Madrid.
The former Tottenham forward is expected to leave the Spanish giants at the end of the season, having only featured 18 times this campaign.
Four-time Champions League winner Bale says it's not been easy being whistled by Madrid fans at home games.
For me, with us we get a lot of pressure every game. If you don’t play well, there’s scrutiny," the Welsh attacker told the Erik Anders Lang podcast.
“I’ve had 80,000 people in a stadium whistling me because I haven’t played well. It’s not great. I’ve had it a few times as well. The first time, I was a bit like, ‘what is this?’ It’s not nice and it doesn’t do your confidence that good a deal either.
“If you’re not having a good time on the pitch, you’d expect your fans to get behind you and try to make you do better because it makes them happy.
“But it seems to be the opposite where they just whistle you, which makes you feel worse. You lose your confidence and then you play worse which is going to make them even more upset."
