Giggs: Bale can play anywhere

Ryan Giggs denies Wales are reliant on Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale but says the forward ‘can play anywhere’ and compares to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Giggs played for Manchester United with the Portuguese but has watched Bale closely with their shared national team, and sees few flaws in his game.

“Bale has a bit of everything. He can score free kicks, use his head, beat opponents…you can cancel him out for 85 minutes and suddenly he scores, like Ronaldo. He has phenomenal ability,” AS quotes the United assistant manager saying.

“He’s able to play in any position. At Tottenham Hotspur he was on the left, and Madrid he’s on the right. But for Wales he can play through the middle, even as a false nine.”
