Wales should not depend too much on Gareth Bale according to Marcel Desailly

Former French international Marcel Desailly has stated that Wales should become too much dependent on Gareth Bale if they want to be successful at the Euros.

Although Gareth Bale is a great player, you cannot win an international tournament just by relying on a single player. He believes that the team will need to develop a good team-spirit and a playing style that will allow them to beat the strongest sides.

He said that as good as he is Cristiano Ronaldo has not won anything with Portugal, and it is important that Wales learn to play as a team in order to succeed. He said that they need to work on the small details to ensure that they are ready for the Euros.

He stated that there is no doubt that Gareth Bale is a world-class player and that he can still become better. He already has the talents, and he will continue to develop and become a better player with experience.

For Desailly, it is important to prepare well ahead of a major tournament such as the Euros. He said that the coaching staff has a responsibility in preparing the players individually to ensure that they are ready on the day. He believes that Wales has plenty of talent in the team and that if Gareth Bale is fit and in form, then they can go on and cause a few upset at the Euros.

Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane has him stated that Bale can inspire Wales at the tournament. He said that a single player cannot win the tournament, but he can certainly help motivate the other players and help them believe that they can achieve great things at the tournament. For him, Bale deserves to be participating at such events, and he has backed him to be a success in France.
