Toshack slams Bale for 'criminal' boot change

Former Real Madrid boss John Toshack has branded Gareth Bale's decision to change his boots in the middle of his side's match with Sevilla as "criminal".

Bale moved to the sidelines to change his footwear while play was continuing in the second half at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, allowing Ivan Rakitic to launch a counterattack down the Welshman's vacated flank and set up Carlos Bacca for the winning goal.
