Rafael Benitez believes in Gareth Bale’s potential, and the latter is well determined to honor him. So much so that the Welshman has changed his way of training. He doesn’t count his hours spent on the turf anymore.
We never fail to remember how Cristiano Ronaldo is a psycho of physical challenge and that he constantly aims to improve his game. And now it will also be necessary to throw flowers to Gareth Bale, teammate and sometimes rival of the Portuguese to Real Madrid. The Welsh international, repositioned in an axial role in the device of Rafael Benitez, made a good impression to the Spanish technician, and now wants to put all the odds on his side to become a frame player.
“Playing behind the attacker is a real option and I like it a lot,” commented Rafael Benitez, in press conference, after the friendly match of the Merengue lost in front of the ace Rome, last Saturday, in Australia, as part of the International Champions Cup (0-0, 7-6 T.A. b). “It’s not an experiment and I think it’s an interesting possibility for other games if it pleases.” Bale would have apparently been enchanted by his coach’s comebacks, and would have seriously put himself to work. Reported that the former star of White Hart Lane has done overtime to improve his ball strike, along with Fabio Pecchia, Rafa’s deputy. CR7 is no longer the only one to do more.
