Bale: My best goal in 2014? Barca goalkeeper goal in the Copa del Rey Final
Dubai – Gareth Bale talk about in 2014. When asked about his best goals in this year, Bale calls goal against Barcelona in the final of the Copa del Rey.
2014 became the year full of success for Bale. Four trophy was won by 25-year-old player with Real Madrid after one season. Fourth trophy among others Copa del Rey, Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup.
“It was a fantastic year for me. I wanted to come to Real Madrid to win the title and work alongside the best players and that’s what I’ve done in one year,” Bale said in an interview with Dubai TV quoted as saying by AS.
“I hope we continue to grow, win more titles, and I can continue to give our best,” said the player from Wales.
Bale then asked where the goal is judged to be the best in the whole year 2014. Ex-Tottenham Hotspur was pointing goal against Barca in the final of the Copa del Rey as the most good.
In the final match, which was held last April, Madrid 2-1 win over Barca. Los Blancos winning goal was created by Bale in the 85th minute.
Goal was born through a special process. Coming up out of the field ran wide due to pressure from Marc Bartra, Bale then it won the sprint race with Barca defender and dribbled it enters the penalty box. Despite continued harassment from Bartra, Bale could finish into goals.
“I think last season was my best goal in the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona. When I drain the ball past the defender, I had to run past the outside of the field,” said Bale.
“But I was just thinking about reaching the goal. Fortunately, it was a winner,” he said.
Madrid who was in impressive pace in La Liga will face Valencia, (03/01/2015), when the league re-rolling after the winter break. Bale hopes Madrid can start the new year with three points from the Mestalla.
“It’s just another game, but we want to win. We prepare 100%. I’m excited to play in the game. We will be aiming for three points and start the year well,” said Bale.
