Beckham Praises "Fresh" Gareth Bale

Former Real Madrid and England Midfielder David Beckham has been praising Gareth Bale for an impressive first season at the Spanish side.

The Welsh forward from Whitchurch got a crucial goal to help Real beat Athletico Madrid in the Champions League final.

Becks told Sky Sports News, "he's had a couple of injuries during the season but he's looked after himself but he looks fresh".

Adding, "he's scored goals, he's setup goals, he works hard and you know, for Real Madrid fans when you work hard that's bigger and better than anything for them".

It's thought Gareth Bale will return to Cardiff City Stadium for the 39th Edition of the UEFA Super Cup which sees the Champions League and Europa League winners take each other on on August 12th 2014.
