Real Madrid won a very dramatic game 7-3 vs Sevilla with new world record signing Gareth Bale scoring two and setting up two. But with British players famously being generally unsuccessful when playing for a team outside of the United Kingdom, could this mark the start of a very successful stint at Real Madrid for Gareth Bale.
The Welshman, aged 24, started his playing career at Southampton and signed for Tottenham. He firstly struggled at the London club but had his most successful season yet in the 2012/2013 season concluding with the PFA and young PFA award. Gareth signed for the spanish giants on the last day of this season’s transfers for a world record fee of £86 million.
However, coming into the club with an injury meant that he was unable to prove is abilities in the first few matches of the season but has definitely started to prove his worth after his performance against Sevilla.
All three attacking players for Real Madrid, Karim Bemzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale worked in tandem all setting up each other’s goals. This performance could mean the start of a great partnership trio between the three european players and could show that Gareth Bale was a good buy despite the incredible price tag.
Along with the victory this week, Gareth Bale would find out that he was the only British player to be nominated for the Ballon D’or. This would top a good week for him and in no doubt cement his place as a future Real Madrid legend.
