Coleman Supports Bale To Mute Cemoohan Real Madrid Supporters
Gareth Bale is ready to silence criticism directed at him while playing at Real Madrid and realize Wales’ dream to qualify for the World Cup, according to Chris Coleman.
Bale had a difficult start to the season in Spain after being plagued by transfer speculation during the summer transfer window, and was booed by fans at Santiago Bernabeu in a draw against Valencia in La Liga.
Scorns will not bother Bale
But Bale is always welcome in his homeland and the 28-year-old, previously linked with a move to Manchester United, will have a big role for Wales in their bid to keep their hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
Wales will host Austria later this week, and visit Moldova’s headquarters three days later in hopes of winning and reducing points with Serbia and the Republic of Ireland in Group D.
“I have known him for the past five or six years, he will not be different,” said Wales manager Coleman responding to Bale’s latest criticism.
“People are wondering how he will play when he goes to Real Madrid because the players are like movie stars there, but he is really capable of passing through. He answered all the criticisms, he has grown to more mature in the last four or five years and is able to get through it very well. ”
“So this last episode will not bother her at all. He is disappointed to miss the game against Serbia (due to suspension), but he looks in good shape and wants to help us qualify, “he added.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane supports Bale to succeed in Madrid after the game against Valencia, saying he is a key player in his squad.
But Marco Asensio scored twice for Real in the game and, with Cristiano Ronaldo returning after the international break, many wanted the young striker to defend his place by pushing Bale to the bench.
“There were periods where he got a lot of pressure, but all he had to do was win the cup. He has one or two injuries but he won three Champions League. No one else has ever gone to a foreign club from this country and done that. Absolutely no one can doubt it, “defended Coleman. (Source: ESPN)
