Gareth Bale was recently interviewed by Sky Sports where he answered some questions from fans. One key highlight was his belief about the existence of UFOs and aliens where he revealed he has tried to convince his teammates at Tottenham as well.

“Evidence of aliens is everywhere. People need to research, it’s interesting, I’m quite into it. [Harry] Kane doesn’t believe because he hasn’t done research. I’ve convinced Joe Rodon but he’s still on the fence, the amount of UFO sightings can’t all be false.”

Bale also talked about his biggest individual career moment being his overhead kick goal against Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League Final in Kyiv. Bale was hesitant to call it one of the best goals in Champions League history, instead electing to say its up to other people’s opinions where it ranks all-time.

He was asked about who he believes is the best teammate he has played with during his career. Bale said its Cristiano Ronaldo based off how long Ronaldo has been able to stay at a consistent, top level.

Bale also talked about his first day training with Real Madrid and Ronaldo. He said he was helped a bit since Ronaldo spoke English and Bale could only speak the language at the time. It also helped that he previously knew Luka Modric and then-assistant manager Paul Clement prior to his time under Carlo Ancelotti.
