Carlo Ancelotti: Gareth Bale's agent needs to keep his month shut.

REAL MADRID boss Carlo Ancelotti has told Gareth Bale's agent to shut up.

Bale's representative, Jonathan Barnett, hit back at the Welshman's critics claiming his below par performances were down to his Real team-mates not giving him the ball.

But speaking ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg against Juventus, Ancelotti told Barnett to keep out of team affairs.

"This is a world in which a lot of people talk and sometimes they talk too much," said Ancelotti.

"Bale has never had problems with his team-mates and his team-mates have never had problems with Bale."

"Bale's agent, who has never been to one of our training sessions, who doesn't know the atmosphere we have, spoke from outside.

"It would have been better to stay quiet. We are happy with Bale's season."

Ancelotti's no holds barred response came after Barnett called on Real to do more to help his player

Speaking at the weekend, Barnett said: "Real have to work with Gareth and pass the ball to him more.

"Give him more of the ball and let him show everybody what he's good at.

"He's going to be the best player at Real Madrid when his team-mates work with him and help him. Hopefully Real will come to terms with this."

Bale has been jeered by sections of Real's fans while his Bentley was attacked as he drove out of their training ground following defat to Barcelona in March.

And the performance of the £86m superstar in the first-leg 2-1 defeat top Juventus in Turin once again drew fierce criticism from the Spanish press.

Bale has been linked with a blockbuster move back to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester United and Chelsea keeping a close eye on events in the Spanish capital.

But Ancelotti has already warned the 25-year-old is going nowhere.

The former Chelsea boss said: "Every top club in the world would want to sign him but he will be at Real Madrid next season.

"There's no way he is going anywhere in the summer.

"When we said he always wanted to play for Real, it was 100 per cent true and he's determined to be a success there."
