Bale Confident His Best Is Yet To Come

Gareth Bale has started to shine at Real Madrid and stepped up when they were without injured superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Wales international, 24, scored a perfect hat-trick (with his head, left and right foot) and assisted the goal of Karim Benzema in Madrid’s 4:0 win over Real Valladolid on Saturday.

“I scored three goals but I hope to do better,” said Bale.

The £85m signing initially struggled to settle in at the Los Blancos, but has returned to form after his thigh injury. He started in every game since the 2:1 El Classico defeat to Barcelona on 26 October and scored eight goals in the process.

“I want to keep improving and working hard during the matches and training.”

“I’m very happy here,” he told Real’s official website. “I needed time to adapt after not having a pre-season but I’m improving now.”

“Everything I hoped for has come true. The fans and the club are incredible.”

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti praised Bale’s performance and believes the Welshman has now fully settled at Madrid.

“I think his period of adaption is over. He is doing well, he is confident and is very important for us.”

Bale has to keep producing as long as his FIFA Ballon D’Or favourite and team mate Ronaldo will be side-lined due to injury.
