Real Madrid star Gareth Bale delivered some quotes to the Daily Mail and talked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus.

“Obviously, it’s going to be a little different, it’s going to be a little more relaxed. I guess it will be more about the team, working more like a unit than concentrating on a single player,” said the Welshman.

Bale was also asked about Julen Lopetegui and Zinedine Zidane.

“I’m not sure I want to respond to whether I think Julen is better than Zidane,” he said before revealing that he speaks English with Lopetegui.

“Obviously, it helps, I can speak in Spanish, but maybe I won’t need to go into the amount of detail I normally would,” added Bale.

Real Madrid will begin their quest for their fourth consecutive Champions League title when they host AS Roma next Wednesday in what will be an important game for the final outcome of the group.
