Speaking on Thursday ahead of Real Madrid’s match against Real Betis on Friday, Carlo Ancelotti discussed Gareth Bale’s departure from the club.
“Everyone knows that his contract is up. Whether he plays tomorrow or not is not so important. What is important is that he has been part of the history of this club. I think he remains in the memory of all Real Madrid fans. He was important in La Décima, in Kiev, in the Copa del Rey… He is a player who has written great chapters in the history of this club and I think everyone recognises that,” Ancelotti said in quotes picked up by AS.
