He went on a sprint for dozens and dozens of meters, but he still found the composure to chip the ball over Real Sociedad’s goalkeeper, in what was a truly impressive goal, which received all the praise from Zinedine Zidane after Real Madrid’s 3-1 win in San Sebastian.
I’m very happy for him. There is a lot of talk about him, but he has demonstrated the player he is
the Frenchman told reporters talking about Gareth Bale and his goal, which finished the game off for Los Blancos in the 61st minute.
It proved to be a great game, not only because of the goal. But I’m happy for the goal because he needed to put it in. It’s not easy, after a 70-metre sprint. Technically he did it very well and, for me he’s not even at his best
the Real Madrid coach said, expecting the Welshman to keep pushing, keep improving, while at the same time answering his critics.
I know we’re going to find the real Bale little by little. I know he can do a lot better, but we have to be patient, as I said before the game
Zidane also said.
