We knew, it is not the great love between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. And the last interview of the Welsh player is not likely to make a difference. During a question and answer session organized by Foot Locker, Bale was invited to name the best player he had in his career. A council Cristiano, mouth Your ears: “For me the best player is Ryan Giggs.” He was my hero growing up, and he’s a legend in the football world. “Also, it helps that he be a compatriot,” he admitted. A bit chauvinistic the ex of Tottenham no? The two Welsh-public favourites played twice together under the Dragons ‘ jersey. Faced with San Marino, they had both scored a goal for a final victory of the Welsh 3-0. It was in 2007.
No luck for CR7 who leaves Bale indifferent despite his 371 goals scored under the Real Madrid jersey. Let’s hope that the likely cricket will not take the fly, especially since Gareth has not named anyone. Cristiano has played six years with Ryan Giggs and does not keep only good memories. At the time, the Welshman did not hesitate to put him back in his place when he had to, as the Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer revealed a few weeks ago. But hey, that’s the past all this, and CR7 and Bale are big enough to put their differences aside at the service of the field.
