Gareth Bale’s future after Euro 2020

Although Bale’s future after Euro 2020 remains uncertain, Ancelotti’s return to the dugout has made a return to the Spanish capital the most likely route for the Welsh forward. “I can only say that I have a great relationship with him,” said Bale in his pre-match press conference ahead of Wales’ fixture against Italy. “He is a great coach and he will do great things at Real Madrid. Italian coach has a chance to convince Welsh player in the project of Real Madrid again.


Playing for the national team

The Welsh captain is aiming to emerge from the Stadio Olimpico with all three points on Sunday to finish top of Group A. “We will try to win our group,” he said. “Playing at Wembley in the last 16 would be nice for our fans. “Beating Turkey is something that we needed, now we have more confidence. “Victories bring confidence and this will help against a very strong Italy side.


Italy have stormed through their opening fixtures so far with consecutive 3-0 victories over Turkey and Switzerland, but Bale believes that Wales can beat them. “It will be difficult, Italy will play attacking football,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean that they don’t have weaknesses. “There are things that we can take advantage of, and we hope to put in a perfect performance. He went on to declare that he is in a strong physical condition as he looks ahead to Sunday’s match. “I feel good, we have had two hard matches, but I am ready to play,” he said. We can’t look too far ahead, we have to think game by game.
