Madrid Dismiss Bale Reports

Real Madrid have responded to reports in Marca claiming that winger Gareth Bale has a slipped disc.

The Spanish newspaper reported that the world-record signing suffered the injury and could be set for surgery, but the club has said that the new was false.

The statement read, "In response to the information that the newspaper Marca has published regarding the player Gareth Bale, Real Madrid would like to state the following:

"1. The information published, claiming that the player has a slipped disc on the L5-S1 vertebrae and a bulge on two others, is completely false.

"2. The player does not have a slipped disc, as the club's medical services stated clearly to the newspaper before the information was published. Surprisingly, the version the doctors offered this media outlet on Thursday 10 October has been omitted.

"3. The player Gareth Bale has a small chronic disc bulge, which is extremely common among football players and by no means prevents him from carrying out his professional activity normally."

Bale switched Tottenham Hotspur for Madrid this summer in a big-money move but injury has prevented him from enjoying regular game time so far.
