Bale IS training with Real Madrid and WILL be ready for Clasico

Posted on October 17, 2013 by admin

The news that Gareth Bale has been training with his Real Madrid team mates since they returned from international duty this week seems to settle the question of his injury once and for all. After the Spanish news agency Marca claimed that he had a hernia or slipped disc that would require surgery, the Club denied it and Bale would not be training if that was the case.

The Welsh international has got a lump on his spine, but it should not interfere with him playing. In fact, former Madrid and Spain defender Fernando Hierro has revealed that he had a similar problem, never had surgery, and played professional football until he was 37-years old. He even trains with the veterans still, so there really is nothing to worry about with Bale.

The only problem is his fitness, which is why he missed international games with Wales and underwent an intensive training schedule to get ready for a match. Real Madrid are targeting the first El Clasico of the season, at the Nou Camp next Saturday the 26th. Hopefully, Bale will be fully fit and ready for that crunch game, so he will feature in the two games leading up to it, although probably not from the start.

So Madrid fans can expect to see the new big money signing at some point in the second half against Malaga this Saturday. Then Juventus make the trip to Madrid for the Champions League game on Wednesday. After that, Ancelotti feels he will be ready for Barcelona.
