Tiger Fight, October 9th, Bell's agent Barnett said in an interview that the English and Spanish media like to belittle their stars. Bell is an example.
Barnett said: "The media in England and Spain really like to hit their superstars. In the UK, the media always like to report negative things about stars. Bell is an example."
"They rarely report how good Bell is, but report some absurd things. For example, because he doesn't speak Spanish, he has a hard time.
Barnett also criticized the media for often claiming Bell likes to play golf: "Many players like to play golf. People always hold Bell to play golf. This is the most absurd thing I have ever heard of in my life."
"I have a client named Brian Lara (cricketer). He will wake up at six in the morning to play golf, relax, and then go to the court to break the record."
"Everyone has their own hobbies, but some idiots often stare at this report. There is nothing wrong with Bell. His 7 years at Real Madrid went well. Although it was a bit unsatisfactory in the end, most of the time everything went well."
"He likes Real Madrid, he likes there, and he is very popular there, which is very different from what is reported."
