Bale back in training

Gareth Bale is back in training with Real Madrid, 43 days after his latest calf muscle injury.

AS reports the Wales international was able to join in with his teammates on Tuesday but won’t be considered for Wednesday’s game against Levante.

Saturday’s fixture with Celta Vigo is more likely but even then the idea will be to use Bale only briefly, so he’s ready to start in the Champions League against Roma a few days later.

If Celta is too soon for Bale then he’ll only be considered for Roma, as Zinedine Zidane doesn’t want to take any risks with the forward’s fitness.
