Real Madrid star Gareth Bale may have just given a hint that he could be set to remain in football but another entirely different form. The Wales international winger has not been the luckiest of players at club level in recent years and there are reports that he is set to quit playing club football to focus on playing for the Wales national team alone. Under former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, Bale became an outcast and was no longer used for games under the Frenchman. His career started declining as a result until English Premier League side Tottenham decided to take him on loan for the previous season.
Bale joined Tottenham and spent the whole of last season at the club where he was able to rediscover his form. However, not even his upturn in fortunes could convince former manager José Mourinho that he deserved to play a lot of games.
