Gareth Bale admitted it was a “great” feeling to mark his return from injury with a goal during Real Madrid’s 7-1 demolition of Celta Vigo in La Liga on Saturday.
Bale had missed Madrid’s last seven games with a torn calf muscle but appeared as a substitute against Celta to round off a resounding victory for the side, and the winger reflected on what the rest of the season held for Los Blancos.
“It was a little frustrating after six weeks out, but it was great to come back and score,” he said after the game.
“The most important thing was to boost the team’s confidence and play well. The fans’ great support comes in handy because we want to go hand-in-hand and do great things together.”
