Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has heaped praise on Gareth Bale after the Welshman starred during the 2-0 La Liga triumph over Getafe on Sunday. The Wales international helped the team score the opening goal after providing an assist to Dani Carvajal and later on, he found the scoresheet as the European champions celebrated an opening day victory.
Speaking after the game, Lopetegui was pleased with the performance of the attacker and believes the 29-year-old offers something different on the playing field, he said: “I was pleased with the team in general and Gareth put in a great performance. Bale offers us solutions. He played well, like many of his teammates. In the structure that we are trying to create, there are players with different characteristics and Gareth has his own. He gives us something different and we need to take advantage of that. We are delighted with how it’s going.”
