Gareth Bale addresses retirement rumours


Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has admitted that he is now in a ‘happier place’ after his season-long loan at Tottenham Hotspur.

The 32-year-old has also insisted that he ‘never planned’ to retire from football this summer, despite the rumours circulating during Euro 2020, where he starred for Wales.

Bale’s future was up in the air over the summer, with a welcome return to Real Madrid seemingly impossible, and another spell in north London in doubt. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s reappointment at the Bernabeu has revived the Welshman’s Merengues career.

Bale has started all three of Madrid’s La Liga fixtures this season, largely thanks to his ‘great relationship’ with the Italian coach. In an interview with BBC Sport, the forward has confessed that he’s now content in Spain, after a successful loan spell with Spurs.

“I’ve always had a great relationship with Carlo, but it’s still the same in the sense that you have to forget that and give your all for the team,” Bale said.
