Ronaldo beats Bale to UCL goal of the season

Share

It has been very nice playing for Real Madrid'. Personally I would love to see him come back to the @premierleague (preferably with @manchesterunited) & dominate.

With Zidane refusing to give the Welshman any guarantee that he will be a regular starter next season, speculation is growing in Spain that Bale will be open to offers this summer, particularly with reports that the club is increasingly hopeful of signing Neymar from PSG.

Ryan Giggs hailed Gareth Bale as the greatest Welsh player he has seen after the Real Madrid star inspired his club's Champions League final victory over Liverpool.

Success for the LaLiga club meant they earned the title of European champions for a third successive year, while Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to win five Champions League medals.

"He's made the difference in a Champions League final - whether that has any bearing, I don't know".

He added: "As I said, when I came on I want to make an impact".

Scholes, who spent six seasons playing alongside Ronaldo at United, hailed his former teammate's achievements as "amazing" and said he was the best player in the world.

"Did we ever think he'd go on to do what he's done?"

The task of deciding which of the two strikes was better went to UEFA's team of Technical Observers who compiled their best 10 goals of the 2017-18 Champions League season.

Wales manager Giggs had been regarded as the finest product of his country, but the former Manchester United winger says that honour arguably belongs to Bale now. But what he has done is produce magic moments on the big stage - in finals, and played a vital role in this record breaking squad lead by the great @zidane.

As a player, the Spaniard spent most of his career at Los Blancos, where tensions between the club and their superstar player seem to be rising. "We will see what happens".
