International

Owen: Bale Should Go To Madrid

Former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United striker Michael Owen says that Gareth Bale should move to Real Madrid.

Owen moved to the Spanish capital for a brief spell after some superb years at Liverpool where he had established himself as one of the top strikers in the league.

The former England international admits that playing for Los Blancos is something special and that Bale should experience it for himself.

"Go. That is my advice to Gareth Bale. You have to experience it. I have played for Real Madrid and it is a magical experience. You are playing in that lovely white kit.

"You float like you are an angel out on to that pitch. The Bernabeu is the best stadium in the world. I felt like a king.

"It is the history, the tradition, the sheer scale of the place.

"When I moved there in 2004, I walked into the stadium and felt the history and expectation. I walked into the trophy room and was reminded of Real’s great history. I went into the dressing room and saw all these famous players, my new team-mates. It is special. Gareth will love it.

"In many ways I was like Gareth is now with Tottenham Hotspur. I did not want to leave Liverpool. I had no reason to. I loved it. I am sure Gareth is exactly the same with Spurs. I am sure he loves the Spurs people, loves the football and he is doing well there.

"But this is Real Madrid we are talking about."
