Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s home match with Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, Carlo Ancelotti spoke about Gareth Bale and his recovery from injury.

“Bale has trained today. He is not going to be called up for the game against Rayo. He is going to Wales and they will assess whether he is available to play for his national team or not. The important thing is that he is fine. After two months out, the player’s feelings are important.”
