BALE IMPRESSING

Carlo Ancelotti praised the adaptation that Gareth Bale has been making since making his move from the Premier League over to La Liga’s Real Madrid.

The Welshman has scored 7 goals in 9 appearances in the Spanish League and his form continues to get better and better with or without C.Ronaldo.

FERGIE SLAMS HEINZE

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that former United defender Gabriel Heinze had a mercenary streak about him. The Argentine defender was brought to the club from PSG in 2004.

He had the capability of playing at left back or in central defence. He had cost the Premier league outfit around £ 7 million in transfer value. He was at the club for only three years before being sold to Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2007. However, he tried to engineer a move to Liverpool during his time at United much to the dismay of Ferguson.
