La Liga: Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, Gareth Bale in good hands
The Wales national team coach, Robert Page, believes Gareth Bale will be even more brilliant at Real Madrid with Carlo Ancelotti.
The 32-year-old Wales captain spent last season on loan at Tottenham but has returned to Real Madrid to see the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu.
Bale has started the first two games under Ancelotti. He scored his first LaLiga goal since September 2019 when Los Blancos drew 3-3 against Levante.
Page then included him in the Wales squad for the friendlies against Helsinki and Finland, as well as the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia.
“Gareth hasn’t changed. Players will tell you different managers have different thoughts on how they want to play and whether they think of you as a person or as a player,” said Page, referring to Bale’s previous dispute with Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane.
“He probably discovered that earlier in his experience at other clubs. He’s got a manager now who is impressed with what he did in pre-season and monitored him at the Euros,” said Page.
Retired at Real Madrid?
Gareth Bale reportedly intends to hang up his boots at the end of next season after his contract at Real Madrid expires.

He returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after a loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur, where he bagged 16 goals and three assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.
Carlo Ancelotti has opened the door for the 31-year-old to play an important role for Los Blancos. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
“He gives his best in training and shows what he has. Thankfully he had a positive impact and started the season in good form. He scored goals, which is good for us.”
Gareth Bale has also been linked with MLS club Los Angeles Galaxy. However, if his career at Madrid gets smoother, he opens up the opportunity to retire there.
