After waiting all summer for the moment, 25,000 Real Madrid fans poured into the Bernabeu Stadium to witness the unveiling of the club’s world-record €100million (£85.3m) signing – one Gareth Frank Bale.
Following last week’s false start, the stage was (re)set for Bale’s arrival, with the Spanish giants proudly displaying a massive picture of the former Tottenham man wearing a Madrid shirt as a kid as part of the ceremony.
And, after a warm welcome from Madrid president Florentino Perez, Bale took to the stage to address his new legion of fans.
‘I just want to say it’s absolutely amazing to be here. I hope I can help the team to bring success. Hopefully this year we can win the tenth European title,’ he said, before managing a similar message in Spanish, which was greeted with huge cheers from the Madrid supporters.
The Welsh international then made his way out onto the pitch to show off a few of his silky skills in the full Real kit.
I just wonder how barcelona and every other team except chelsea hehehehehehehe can cope with this madrid combo of ronaldo + bale… shegzienator beware !!!
