Gareth Bale: Real Madrid more relaxed without Ronaldo

18 September, 2018, 14:59 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Gareth Bale has won four Champions Leagues in five years at Real Madrid, but believes the Spanish giants can be even better in their quest for a 14th European crown despite the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Fired by his anger at being left out of the starting line-up in Zinedine Zidane's last match in charge of Madrid, Bale came off the bench to score twice in last season's Champions League final to beat Liverpool 3-1.

Wales global Bale was sent on by then coach Zinedine Zidane with the score at 1-1 after 61 minutes, beating Liverpool keeper Loris Karius with his sensational strike three minutes later.

Bale said, "Angry. Quite angry, to be honest".

Bale was coy on the question of whether or not his goal was superior to Ronaldo's, saying: "It's not for me to say!" Obviously, I was a little tense with all the talk after my move from Real Madrid and not scoring, so there were a lot of expectations, but I thank my team-mates for supporting me throughout.

"You certainly don't really think about looking stupid". I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time. You try to make it more hard because if it doesn't go in the corner I always give them a problem if it's right down their throat.

Bale, 29, left Spurs for Madrid in the summer of 2013, for a then world record fee of £85.3 million, and despite receiving criticism from some quarters, he has enjoyed a wonderfully successful career at the Santiago Bernabeu, chalking up 91 goals and 61 assists in 194 appearances in all competitions.

"It's maybe a bit more relaxed, yes".

'I just said, "Keep your head up",' Bale said. "I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player".
