Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale talked to the press after appearing in Wales’ press conference this Thursday. This time, the Welshman was interviewed by Sky Sports and explained what it felt like to be on his way out of the club for most of the summer.

“The change of opinion about my future surprised me. I’m sure there’ll be plenty more turbulence, to be honest. I suppose it is something you will have to speak to Real Madrid about and it’s between me and them, and we will have to come to some sort of conclusion. I focused on doing a good preseason without knowing where I was going to play,” said Bale.

The Welshman was reportedly ready to complete a move to the Chinese Superleague but ended up staying in Madrid and has been a starter in all three games played by Los Blancos.

“I wouldn’t say I’m playing happy but I’m playing, when I am playing I am professional and I am always giving all I can, whether that be for club or country. Last season was difficult for everyone, for the team and also for me. I understand I was made more of a scapegoat than most. I didn’t pay attention but I don’t think it was fair,” concluded Bale, who will miss Madrid’s next game after receiving a red card in Villarreal.
