Bale Returns To Real Madrid Buzzing

Gareth Bale says that arriving at Real Madrid slightly injured has been the only bad aspect of an otherwise perfect start to his Bernabeu career.

The world’s most expensive footballer endured a stuttering start to his tenure in Spain’s capital, but is now flying high as a regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s first-team.

In the games before the international break, Welsh international Bale was a pivotal contributor to Real’s best moments.

And after his fitness doubts, he finally feels as if he has arrived.

"I felt very comfortable straightaway. Obviously after an injury and a bit of a slow start I am enjoying everything on the pitch now and I am just looking forward to the rest of the season," Bale said.

"It's been great since I have been here, everyone has made me feel very welcome.”

When top-flight European club football gets underway again this weekend, Los Blancos will have securing their progression to the next round of the Champions League on their agenda, as well as mounting the top of the table in La Liga.

One point from their two remaining games will see them through in Europe, while a string of wins in Spain should them back in contention.

And Bale is confident that he and his team-mates can achieve their ambitions as long as they present the requisite focus on the tasks at hand.

"I think it is important first and foremost that we qualify mathematically and we make sure we get through that, but even with the Champions League, we're 100% focused on the league as well," he said.

"No matter what competition it is, we'll be going out to win every single game."
