Thibaut Courtois has seemingly hit out at Gareth Bale for not making more of an effort to fit in with his team-mates at Real Madrid.
The goalkeeper, signed from Chelsea in the summer, explained that his Welsh team-mate was one of just two players miss a team dinner and claimed that Bale's talent was often "blocked from shining".
Team-mate Marcelo had previously stated that Bale, who moved to Madrid in 2013, still doesn't speak Spanish, and Courtois has now hinted that Bale, who he says is known as "the golfer" to his team-mates, is not fitting in with the Spanish giants.
"It is very hard to describe Gareth in one word," he told to Belgian newspaper HLN.
"I would say he has so much talent, but that it is such a shame that so often that talent is blocked from shining."
Courtois added: "I live like somebody who is born and bred in Madrid. I eat late, I go bed late... it is their way of life.
"The other night we had a dinner with the entire squad.
"But Bale and [Toni] Kroos did not turn up. They reckoned the dinner was too late at night.
"We had arranged to be in the restaurant at 9.30pm and we started out meal around 10.15pm and by midnight we were having coffee.
"We go to bed at around 1am. We have to train every morning at 11am. I think that is a perfect time.
"But Bale had told us 'I am not coming to join you, guys. I go to bed at 11'."
