Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has described his first year at the club as incredible after he secured his fourth winners medal since joining the club.
The 25-year-old forward signed for the Santiago Bernabeu side for 91-million-euros from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2013. He had a slow start to life in the Spanish capital, but in 2014 he exploded into life – scoring in the final of the Copa del Rey and Champions League.
He was part of the side that won the European Super Cup in August, and the Welshman netted in yet another final – in the 2-0 win over San Lorenzo in the Club World Cup on Saturday evening.
Looking back on 2014, the forward said the past year had been incredible from him personally and for the club as a whole.
I was really looking forward to playing in this Club World Cup. It has been an incredible year for us, we hope to keep winning titles,” he said.
And he added: “It is impressive to travel and around the world and see the way the fans welcome us. We are very grateful for that. I am happy to be playing for the best team in the world. It is an incredible feeling and I am also proud to represent Wales. I hope that 2015 goes well.”
