Gareth Bale attended Real Madrid Television on Media Day in Valdebebas and looked ahead to Saturday's Champions League final against Juventus which takes place in his hometown, Cardiff.
Recovery: “I'm feeling great. I've completely recovered. I've been working very hard, sometimes two sessions a day to get back to full fitness”.
Team comes first says Bale
In the starting XI against Juve: "I won't be disappointed if I'm not in the team - I would be disappointed if I hadn't made it in time to be at the final. I've been working hard to get back in form and have my ankle in good shape. Whether I play the final or not, it's been a difficult year for the injuries I've had".
Isco: "He's a fantastic player and he's been playing really well over the past few weeks. I'm happy for him and for how he is helping the team during this final part of the season. Whoever makes the team, we will all help each other because the most important thing is that the team wins the final".
Bale back hom in Cardiff for the final
Big day in Cardiff: “It's going to be a very special day. A final in the city where I was born and we are just one step away from winning the trophy”.
Crowned European champions in Cardiff, a dream: “You think about it, and imagine it, but it's not something which needs to be given a lot of importance. First, we have to play and win”.
