Bale ‘can’t wait’ for Madrid return

Gareth Bale says he cannot wait to get back playing for Real Madrid as he attempts to recover from a calf strain to his left leg.

The Welshman suffered the injury in Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory over Malaga on April 18 and is hopeful of a return to action for the club’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash with Juventus on May 5.

Bale posted a video on social networks showing him taking part in strengthening work at the gymnasium and also sent a message to the Madrid fans.

“Feeling stronger every day! Can’t wait to get back and join the lads,” it read.

Both the player and club doctors would like him to be available for the League fixture at Sevilla this Saturday, although boss Carlo Ancelotti is still pondering his inclusion as he does not want to lose him for the Champions League matches.
