Frank Lampard backs Bale

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has backed Welshman Gareth Bale to be a success at Real Madrid, but he says that it will be only possible if the former Tottenham star starts becoming more selfish in front of goal.

Bale moved to Madrid for a world record transfer fee of £ 85 million in 2013. He won the Champions League and the Copa del Rey in his first season at the club. Even though he did not score the same number of goals as superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale contributed immensely in this crucial campaign for the club. This season, however, he has struggled for form.

The 25-year-old has scored 10 goals and contributed five assists in 20 matches this season, but it does not appear to have been sufficient for the Real Madrid supporters. Bale has been vocally criticised by his own supporters, although only a small section.

Gareth Bale got €91 million from Real Madrid

Gareth Bale went from being the main star of Tottenham Hotspur to joining Real Madrid for a record breaking transfer fee of €91 million and at first many people questioned this transfer as if the Welshman was worth all that cash but a few months later and Bale proved his worth as he helped Real Madrid on securing major titles including: The Kings Cup and the Champions League.

Bale continues playing a huge role for Real Madrid with consistent performances and now that the January transfer window is only a few weeks away from kicking off, Manchester United appears to have taken an interest in signing the Welshman and if rumors are to be believed then the Premier League club could be offloading as much as £90 million in order to bring him to Old Trafford.


Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush says that he is expecting even better things from Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale in the coming years. The Welshman is one of the players nominated for the FIFA Ballon d’Or award after helping Madrid win the Champions League title last season.

Even though Bale had a tough start to his life at the Santiago Bernabeu, he became a crucial member of the team towards the end of the campaign. Undoubtedly, his performances with Madrid have led to the talk of Bale helping Wales reach new heights in the coming years.

Riise Claims Magath has destroyed club

Former Fulham defender John Arne Riise says that manager Felix Magath has completely destroyed the club in the last few months. Magath took over as the Fulham manager in the second half of last season, but he was unable to prevent the London club from losing their Premier League status after more than a decade. Despite the disappointment, there was huge expectation surrounding Craven Cottage that they would be able to return to the English top division in the first instance. This has not been the case, as Fulham have made such a poor start to the Championship that they are now in danger of relegation to League One.

Mazzarri Lavishes Praise From United

Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has lavished the praise from Manchester United by saying that they looked unbeatable. Inter recently came up against United in a pre-season friendly match. After the arrival of Louis van Gaal, the club have undergone a massive transition especially in terms of formation. During the regime of Sir Alex Ferguson, United were famed for sticking with the 4-4-2 formation. Van Gaal, though, has changed this immediately after adopting the 3-5-2 formation that was so popular in his Dutch team at the World Cup 2014.
