With Cristiano ronaldo’s switch from real madrid to juventus, the Welshman Gareth bale finally has a run as talisman at real Madrid
Welshman Gareth bale made a then world record move from Tottenham Hotspur to real Madrid, a world record move which seemed to matter little as Cristiano ronaldo continued to run the show leaving the Welshman in second place since his arrival.
Cristiano ronaldo finally made a move away from the Spanish capitals to the old lady at Turin in a £100m deal this summer and finally for once the Welshman has a run at leadership.
The injury prone forward was out for the majority of last season as Cristiano ronaldo dragged real madrid to the finals of the champions league. But came on as a substitute to win the match for the team. Two amazing goals from Welshman blew surprise finalists Liverpool away including a marvelous overhead kick just moments after coming on and a long punt which drew a mistake from the Liverpool goal keeper ‘karius’.
The forward has been tested but not as trusted as former talisman Cristiano ronaldo. Question is can gareth bale shoulder the responsibility at real madrid ?
Speed, strength and a keen eye for goal are one of the few traits shared by both players but the ability to deliver at awkward moments has been the major difference between the Portuguese, the Welshman and literally the rest of the players in football. Gareth bale however is a worthy candidate to replace the 33 year old striker with a deal for chelsea’s Eden hazard looking very unlikely as new manager julen seems to prefer Spaniard isco Alarcon at the right wing over the Belgian.
The new season may be Gareth bale’s only shot at leadership at the madrid capitals. With the board looking to offload a list of players as they make way for he young talents.
