Gareth Bale on the Champions League Final and Making It to the World Cup

Also shares some of his style secrets.

By //Sports

Known for his impeccable style on and off the pitch — and for helping to pioneer the man-bun — Welsh superstar Gareth Bale is a definite force to be reckoned with. Having made his move from the Premier League to La Liga back in 2013, the former Tottenham Hotspur has found glorified results with his current Real Madrid squad, even leading them to become the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles. With his tactical prowess, the winger even paved the way for Wales’ historic run to the semifinals of the 2016 European Championship.

We recently caught up with Bale in Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium as he recalls this year’s special Champions League victory in his birth town of Cardiff, Wales, how he bounced back from injury, his style secrets and pre-game rituals. Of course with the World Cup only one short year away, Bale opens up about his current goal in taking Wales to the top.
