Real Madrid Winger, Gareth Bale has said that Real Madrid is a better team without Ronaldo who left the Spanish giants for Juventus in the summer.
Bale, who has won four Champions League with Real Madrid has scored in all Madrid’d La Liga game this season believes the Portugese absence has made the players to play more as a team and.
“Obviously it’s going to be a little different from having such a big player there,” He said.
“It’s maybe a bit more relaxed, yes. I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player.”
While Ronaldo’s goals were behind the team’s success in Europe in recent seasons, Bale believes the team can even be better without the all time Champions League goal scorer.
“We can be even better again,” he predicted
“Another start and another challenge. We’re ready for it.”
Bale’s strained relationship with former manager, Zinedine Zidane meant the Welshman was given limited time on the pitch and was thinking of leaving Zidane not left. But that seems to be in the past though as new coach, Julen Lopetegui, and Bale is having a new lease on life.
“Obviously it helps,” Bale said of having a coach who believes in him.
