Wales international and captain, Gareth Bale has official written to his club Real Madrid to inform them of his decision to leave the club. This is coming after the club clinched it 14th UCL title which makes 5 for him. Even though Gareth Bale didn’t enjoy much playing time in the UCL and same for the season’s domestic league, LA LiGA. In a statement that read thus..
“I write this message to say thank you to all my team mates, past and present, my managers, the back room staff and to the fans that supported me.
I arrived here 9 years ago as a young man who wanted to realise my dream of playing for Real Madrid. To wear the pristine white kit, to wear the crest on my chest, to play at the Santiago Bernabéu, to win titles and to be part of what it’s so famous for, to win the Champions League.
I can now look back, reflect and say with honesty that this dream became a reality and much, much more.
To be a part of this club’s history and to achieve what we achieved while I was a Real Madrid player, has been an incredible experience and one I will never forget.
I also want to thank President Florentino Perez, Jose Angel Sanchez, and the board for giving me the opportunity to play for this club. Together we were able to create some moments that will live forever in the history of this club and football.
It has been an honour.
Real Madrid C.F.
