Barcelona won all the major trophies of the previous season as the team of Luis Enrique were able to win the Champions League, Copa del Rey and the Spanish League. It was an outstanding season for Barcelona as they defeated and overcame everything in their path but Real Madrid on the other hand failed on lifting any pieces of silverware and this is why Carlo Ancelotti was sacked as the head coach of Real Madrid.
Florentino Perez decided that Carlo Ancelotti was not good enough after a trophy-less season even though the Italian manager was able to win the Champions League during his first campaign in charge of the Spanish club.
The pre-season has kicked off and this is the period of time where managers prepare their respective squads by signings new players but it’s a fairly simpler period for the players of teams as they have a moment to relax with only pre-season friendlies being the matches that they have to play.
During this pre-season moment, Gareth Bale has taken the chance to do some of the things that he doesn’t have time to do during a regular season and golf is one of his hobbies.
The Real Madrid superstar teamed up with the Welsh comedian Rob Brydon and Sir. Gareth Edwards as they claimed the Celebrity Cup golf tournament. When the golf tournament reached it’s end, Bale stated that it was a nerve wracking competition for him even more than it is to play in the pitch of Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu where over 80,000 fans go and watch the Welshman play on a weekly basis.
Gareth Bale has to enjoy these pre-season moments as things will become much more difficult for him and for Real Madrid in the next season when they initiate their quest of taking the titles away from their rivals Barcelona and try to turn into the new champions not only of Spain but the champions of Europe as well.
