CR7 effect: Juventus shirt sales more than double after Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival

Shannon Reynolds | 18 September, 2018, 17:16

Madrid have started a new era under the guidance of coach Julen Lopetegui, and with Cristiano Ronaldo sold this summer to Juventus, it has opened the door for Bale to play a more regular role in the team.

"It's maybe a bit more relaxed, yes. I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player".

While City romped to the Premier League title last season, breaking many records and taking an unprecedented number of points along the way, their campaign in the Champions League ended emphatically and unceremoniously at the hands of Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

Bale admitted starting on the bench had angered him, and his feelings were unchanged when he was introduced.

"We'll get into the swing of the Champions League right away against one of the best clubs in the world!" he told Goal. Bale said, "Angry. Quite angry, to be honest".

Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema has predicted the club that will win the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League trophy.

"Obviously, I felt I deserved to start the game".

When asked if losing Ronaldo would hurt Los Blancos, Alves told Marca: 'I think that, contrary to what everybody else says, Madrid are more of a team without Cristiano, and now it's a little more hard than it was before - at least because of how I see football and my concept of this game'.

Bale was coy on the question of whether or not his goal was superior to Ronaldo's, saying: "It's not for me to say!"

The 33-year-old failed to score in his opening three league games for Juventus - a goal drought by his own lofty standards - but he got up and running with a double in their 2-1 over Sassuolo.
