Gareth Bale has proved to be one of the most talented players ever produced by Wales. Hailing from Cardiff. He made a name for himself as a fast, strong and skillful player with a phenomenal strike and ball control. Bale is currently playing in Real Madrid. He has won plenty of prestigious titles and cups including Champions League trophies.
Gareth Bale is the one to form an award-winning “BBC” trio along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. He boasts an enormous strike force in addition to countless goals. However, do you know the exact Gareth Bale age? What is Gareth Bale weight and height? How about his scoring stats and family life? Let’s have a look at some insights.
How Old is Gareth Bale?
The legendary Welsh player was born on July 16, 1989, in Cardiff. He is 29 years old. Bale has always been involved in sports. He has been playing football and rugby since the times in secondary school. Later he managed to get to the Southampton academy following Bale’s first professional football debut back in 2006.
He never played as the left wing forward originally. Gareth used to play at the positions of the left back. He made 40 appearances for the Saints during the first season in the then professional team and later moved to Tottenham. That was the turning point in his career. Thanks to Gareth Bale height and weight, he could make any tackle even at high speed performing great ball control combined with an enormous strike force. His season with Spurs appeared to be a great success followed by his first ever trophy after the iconic final against Burnley in 2009.
Spurs Talisman Moves to Real
Gareth Bale released his playing talents in Tottenham. He became a real mascot of the team. However, it was high time for the player to get spotted by some huge clubs like Real Madrid. It was only a matter of time Bale will get to the new club. The £77m deal finally took place and Bale started playing with Cristiano and Karim forming the iconic BBC trio of forwards.
He managed to become the key component for Real. Although there still be some ups and downs throughout Bale’s career in Spain, it seems like he can become the essential element after Cristiano leaving the team for Juventus. Benzema also faces some difficulties and is very likely to change the club in the nearest future. It seems like Bale is the only hope for Real. At least for now.
