Real Madrid midfielder Isco has spoken about Gareth Bale’s struggles with injuries at Madrid. The Welshman suffered yet another injury in training which rules him out of the Madrid derby in the coming week.
The potential of former Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale always seems to remain unfulfilled at Real Madrid. After a blistering start to his career with Los Blancos, Bale’s career has seen a decline, due to his several minor injuries and some major ones as well.
These injuries have prevented him from realizing his potential as well as cementing his place at Madrid as a ‘Galactico’.
Ever since his world-record move in 2014, Bale has been the target of transfer moves from several European giants, including Manchester United. However, he has remained at Madrid and has continued to enjoy great success in the UEFA Champions League.

Gareth Bale’s injury woes worsen ahead of important match
Bale’s injuries have prevented him from gaining the trust of manager Zinedine Zidane, who now prefers to play Isco instead of the Welshman. There was once a time when the trio of Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo were thought of as the most potent trio in world football.
However, thanks to Bale’s struggles, it seems as though the three of them will never be able to unleash their potential together on the pitch.
Speaking to the media ahead of Spain’s international friendly against Costa Rica, Isco spoke about his teammate’s struggles. He said,”Gareth has been injured for a long time.”
Isco stressed on Bale’s injury worries and said,”He’s having a hard time”. Bale’s latest injury is a strain to his adductor muscle, as confirmed in the medical report shared by Real Madrid.
There has been no timeline mentioned yet on his return, however, fans can be assured that they will be seeing a lot more of Isco rather than Bale.
Bale’s injuries have ruined his dream move to Madrid from Tottenham. He simply hasn’t been able to improve his fitness and now seems like a risky investment for Premier League clubs as well, who are eyeing a move to rescue him from his plight at Madrid. Isco will be looking to continue his impressive displays for club and country in Bale’s absence.
