Gareth Bale: I prefer Spanish football


Gareth Bale has done little to quash rumours of a move to Real Madrid by revealing his favourite league to watch is the Spanish La Liga.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, the Welshman said he admired the technical ability of the players in the Spanish league.

He also admitted he would like to test himself in another league outside the Premier League at some point during his playing career.

Los Blancos have been linked with a big-money move for Bale all summer long, with some of the senior players in the squad, including Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos, urging him to make the move to the Spanish capital.

Bale scored 26 goals in all appearances for Spurs last season and was voted the PFA Player of the Year.

He told Esquire: “I probably prefer Spanish football to the others. It’s very technical the way they play, they keep the ball well and whenever Spurs have played against Spanish teams in the past they’ve always made it difficult for us.

“So I’d say that Spanish football is probably the best I’ve seen. Obviously, I’d like to try other leagues in the future. Every player would like to get as high as they can and try different things.It’s something that the future holds and it’s something that I’m very interested to try in the least.”
