Bale ‘proud’ of debut goal

Gareth Bale made a goalscoring debut for Real Madrid on Saturday, and the attacker has admitted it was a proud moment.

The Wales international scored an equalising goal in Los Blancos’ 2-2 draw with Villarreal at El Madrigal.

But the 24-year-old has conceded that he was disappointed not to win in his first game for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

“Proud to score on my debut and pleased to get 60 minutes tonight,” Bale tweeted.

“Just disappointed not to get the result. Looking forward to Tuesday now.”

Real Madrid play Galatasaray in their first Champions League match of the season next week.
