Hole in One. Star rookie of the summer transfer window of Los Angeles FC, leader of the Western Conference in Major League Soccer, Gareth Bale offers a new horizon in his career. As the saying he popularized: “Wales, Golf, Real Madrid: in that order”, Gareth Bale has distinguished himself much more in recent years in the jersey of Wales (which he took to Qatar for the 2022 World Cup) or on the golf course, than with the jersey of Real Madrid . Yet quadruple winner of the Champions League and precious for Madrid between 2014 and 2018, Gareth Bale got lost under the merengue tunic. At the end of the contract this summer, he could have returned to Cardiff but he finally opted for an experience in the United States with Los Angeles FC.

A choice that he quickly valued on the sporting level. “I am here for the medium-long term. I haven’t been here for six or twelve months. I still have a lot to give. I think it’s the best place for me to prepare for the World Cup and even the next Euro with Wales. I want to leave a mark here in MLS, I want to be an important player for this club and this championship. he confessed two weeks earlier. Playing 258 matches in 9 years with Real Madrid for 106 goals and 67 decisive, Gareth Bale is capable of great things and intends to shine on the side of the country of Uncle Sam. We talk more about the Greens of MLS than about golf. And the least we can say is that he did not miss his debut.

Already effective

Author of a good entry against Nashville during a 2-1 victory, he was able to evolve with a player he knew in Europe and who also arrived at Los Angeles FC: Giorgio Chiellini. After this first score, Gareth Bale showed enthusiasm: “I just try to get up to speed as quickly as possible and do whatever I can to help the team when I’m on the pitch. I want to try to contribute as much as I can, to try to win matches and win trophies.” Already showing good dispositions during his first 20 minutes of play, Gareth Bale again started on the bench against Kansas City (2-0), where he was able to shine even more.

Entered in the 65th minute of play in place of the Ghanaian Kwadwo Opoku, Gareth Bale only took a good quarter of an hour to open his counter in Major League Soccer. Initiating a counter with Cristian Arango before embarking on a long run to the right, the Welshman tried his luck at the entrance to the area. A shot lodged on the right of the goal which left no chance for the goalkeeper. Enough to satisfy his coach Steve Cherundolo, who was already in ecstasy when he arrived: « He’s a unique player. He is a player who can change a match, he is a player who can decide matches. Gareth Bale is off to a perfect start on his journey with Los Angeles.
