Bale: Real More Of A Team Without Ronaldo

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has claimed there is more of a togetherness at Los Blancos without superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the club's highest scorer in history.

Ronaldo Finally Opens Scoring Account For Juve

Many feel the former Tottenham Hotspur star will be one of the few players to benefit from Ronaldo's move to Juventus.

Early signs suggest that the Welshman is playing with more freedom in his role as one of the team's key men, having contributed to six goals in five games already this season.

Speaking in a recent interview, the 29-year-old acknowledged there is a different feel in the team without Ronaldo, which he does not think is a bad thing.

"Obviously, it's going to be a little different from having such a big player there," he told the Daily Mail.

"It's maybe a bit more relaxed, yes. I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player."

'Ronaldo One Of The Greatest Footballers Who's Ever Lived!'

Bale is nine goals away from bringing up a century of strikes for Los Blancos, and is six matches away from playing 200 games for the Spanish giants.

Do you think Bale can now be Real's star man? Let us know in the comments section below.
