Support, don't pressure Bale: Ronaldo

Oct 23 2013, 5:26am CDT | by IANS

Madrid, Oct 23 (IANS) New signing Gareth Bale needs to be supported and not pressurised, Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo said ahead of their Champions League clash at home to Juventus Wednesday night.

Madrid, Oct 23 — New signing Gareth Bale needs to be supported and not pressurised, Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo said ahead of their Champions League clash at home to Juventus Wednesday night.

Bale has struggled for fitness since his record signing from Tottenham Hotspurs at the end of the summer, but Ronaldo believes that all the Welshman needs is time, reports Xinhua.

"Bale is doing well," he said. "He has had problems since his arrival, as he didn't have a pre-season and he has been injured, but if you speak to him, he is very excited to be in the team, but he needs to be left on his own and to not be pressured."

"He is a great kid and he always wants to learn," added Ronaldo

"He is under a lot of pressure because of what he cost, but I don't think that is good for him. We have to try to help him, because I am totally certain he will be good for the team."

Ronaldo was also asked about Iker Casillas who commented last week that if his situation of being substitute in the league didn't change in the next three months, he would think about leaving the club.

"Everyone has his opinion. I have mine, but I am not going to say it here as I don't want any problems. As the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) says, Iker is important in the club and I agree with that," he commented.

Lionel Messi Is Enjoying His Football Again, Which Is Great for Barcelona

Sep 21 2014 5:55pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Barcelona dismantled Levante in Valencia on Sunday night, and the man at the heart of it was a happy-looking, carefree Lionel Messi.  The Argentina forward seemed to be playing with a huge weight on his shoulders last season, which can be attributed to various issues. Perhaps it was the looming World Cup, a competition where he would be expected to carry Argentina to the final to try and triumph in the home of their great rivals, Brazil. He did this, winning the Golden Ball on the way, but wa ...
