The player was very much a dejected figure at the Spanish club towards the end of his tenure at Santiago Bernabeu. He was heavily criticised by the fan base and the Spanish media for his persistent injury problems and his desire to stick around despite not playing regularly.
But the move to Major League Soccer seems to have rejuvenated the 32-year-old winger, and he was spotted in high spirits following the Los Angeles football club’s derby win over LA Galaxy.
His new club won the derby game 3-2, and Bale was seen singing and dancing with his teammates and celebrating with the fans.
Meanwhile, the Welshman was quite reserved with the celebrations at Real Madrid even when the Spanish giants won trophies like the Spanish title and the Champions League.
It is evident that Bale is feeling a lot better with the change of scenery, and he has revealed that he’s already feeling at home in Los Angeles.
He also outlined the attractiveness and glamour surrounding his new club and is looking forward to playing with them regularly in the coming months.
“It’s a new club, but it has a lot of glamour and is very attractive,” Bale said via Marca.
“Talking to them made me feel it was the right thing to do. I felt at home right away.
“I’m excited to get started and play in front of these amazing fans.”
“I want to play, I want to make my mark and help win a trophy,” Bale said.
“I can also help with the young players, give them advice, let them see what I do and help them at all times.”
The 32-year-old is a world-class player, and there is no doubt that he will improve the Los Angeles football club immensely this season.
The Welsh international has not played regular first-team football at the club level for a while now, and he will be hoping to get his match fitness levels up before the World Cup.
He has managed to guide Wales to the mega event for the first time in decades, and he will be hoping to mark his presence in Qatar later this year with top-class performances.
Furthermore, Bale managed to ruffle a few feathers in the Spanish media with a perfectly spoken interview in the Spanish language with the Los Angeles football club.
The former Real Madrid star was heavily criticised during his nine-year stay at Santiago Bernabeu for his inability to speak Spanish.
Spanish publication Marca responded to his interview in Spanish by claiming that this is the first time they have seen him speak the language. It was almost flawless, leaving them wondering whether the players intentionally chose to stick with English during his time at the club.
