Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has expressed delight with the attitude of Wales international, Gareth Bale.
Recall that Bale spent last term out on loan at Tottenham after he was frozen out Zinedine Zidane, but has returned to the club in optimistic spirits.
Having started Madrid’s opening LaLiga fixture against Alaves at the weekend and dazzled, the future appears bright for him again.
Marca reports Ancelotti has been won over by Bale’s ‘positive attitude’, and it appears that the superstar has sealed a remarkable turnaround.
From barely being able to play for a minute under Zidane to looking ahead to the new season with his first-team role restored, Bale is said to have ‘changed’.
The switch in the dugout, which saw Ancelotti return to the Bernabeu, truly looks to have done Bale the world of good, and he is expected to play a big role this term.
Indeed, Bale shined up front and was rejuvenated in a trident with Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema in Madrid’s recent 4-1 victory.
