Gareth Bale Admits He Is 'Not Having A Good Season' At Real Madrid


Gareth Bale admitted that he is ‘not having a very good season’ in the wake of Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Getafe on Saturday.

The Welshman scored in the win but has seen his form questioned both by the fans and in the Spanish press with injuries preventing him from getting into his stride so far this campaign.

“I’m not having a very good season,” Bale is quoted as saying in AS. “Injuries have prevented me from having the rhythm I need to be at my best.”

The team as a whole have also been criticised, particularly following their 4-0 defeat to Barcelona in El Clasico, but Bale insisted that they remain united.

“Winning is the most important thing,” he added. “The first half [against Getafe] was incredible, we were all working for each other and we showcased our good form.”What matters most is that the team are united, that we win games and try to get better every day.

“Personally speaking, I feel comfortable with where I’m being played on the pitch and I always do the best I can.

“It’s nice to score but the most important thing is the team. I have a good relationship with Rafa Benítez. The fans were great and they always want us to win.”
