Playing For Wales Is More Exciting Than Real Madrid - Gareth Bale  

Austin Papi

Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale, has said that he finds it more exciting to play for the Wales national team than for the Spanish giants, Real Madrid.

Bale is currently amidst controversies in Spain this season due to his attitude. The 30-year-old’s latest comments might further enrage Real Madrid supporters, who have so far booed the Welshman for allegedly faking his injuries and playing golf.

Indeed, Bale has not featured for the Los Blancos since sustaining a calf injury on international duty in October but has reportedly found his fitness in time to travel with Ryan Giggs’ side for a Euro 2020 qualifier against Azerbaijan on Saturday.

“I definitely have more excitement playing for Wales. I've been with most of the older players since we were in the U17s. It's like playing with your mates down the park on a Sunday. It's normal.

“With Wales, I'm speaking my own language and feel more comfortable. But it doesn't change what I do on the pitch.

“I always give 100 per cent on the pitch wherever I am, that's what I always strive to do,” Bale stated.
