Gareth Bale: Wales winger ‘not playing happy’ with Real Madrid future uncertain

Gareth Bale admits he’s”not playing thankfully” in the start of the 2019/20 season, following a turbulent transfer window where he came near leaving Real Madrid.
The summer move to Super League side Jiangsu Suning dropped amid reports of a falling out with Zinedine Zidane.
Bale, who’s contracted until 2022 in the Bernabeu, states he remains unsettled in the club.
He told Sky Sports:”I know I was made out of a scapegoat than many, I carry it with a pinch of salt even though maybe it is not all completely fair.
“Towards the end of last season was challenging, there’s no denying that, not only for me but for your own group.
“I wouldn’t say I am playing happy but I am playing, when I am playing I am professional and I am always giving all I am, if that be for state or club.
“I’m sure there’ll be plenty more turbulence, to be honest. I suppose it is something you’ll have to speak to Real Madrid around and it’s between them and me, and we will need to come to some kind of conclusion.”
Bale believes by scoring two goals at 3, he’s responded well after a La Liga matches.
Speaking ahead of Wales’ European Qualifier against Azerbaijan, live on Sky Sports, Bale said:”Coming back to pre-season I only kept my head again and I know there was a lot of discussion, with folks saying that the good, poor, or anything they desired.
“It was not the worst period of my profession, it’s been not ideal but I know how to take care of it and it’s all about keeping your head down.
“You get rewarded with all the work which you put in and I’ve started the season well and also did a good pre-season even if this has not been the case with the amount of matches.
“Matters in football can turn rapidly and it’s only a matter of time.”
Bale is set to captain Ryan Giggs’ side with Ashley Williams yet, for their upcoming games to return to match fitness.
He insists that Wales are focused on attaining Euro 2020, in June following defeats to Hungary and Croatia, which have left them second from bottom on three factors in qualifying Group E.
Bale said:”We understand the strain that’s on us because we lost the two games in the summer, we’re under no illusions that we will need to win matches the mentality and the mindset doesn’t change.
“We understand the problem and we will do what we can to win every game we go into today.”
“We have a great team and plenty of kids coming through so it is exciting occasions but we need to do on the pitch.”
