Gareth Bale explains the reason behind joining LAFC

Gareth Bale ended his nine-year spell with Real Madrid.

The Welsh international won five Champions League trophies with Real Madrid and there was plenty of speculation around his future in the summer.

He eventually joined Los Angeles FC on a one-year deal and is the latest European star to join the MLS.

The 32-year-old winger helped Wales reach their first World Cup since 1958.

He further went on to explain the reason behind joining the MLS.

“The club’s really on the rise,” Bale told ESPN’s Taylor Twellman.

“It’s very new, but it’s something that’s really glamorous and it’s a very attractive club. Just speaking with them, it felt really like the right thing to do. It felt like home straight away.”

“I can come in and offer obviously what I can do in football, but I can help with the youngsters,” Bale said. “Because obviously, it’s a very young team here, giving them advice, seeing what I do in terms of professional standard and trying to help them.

“I think the league is a growing league and it was an exciting opportunity that I felt was right for me and my family.”
