Wales head coach Ryan Giggs has revealed that Gareth Bale will take over from Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has made a shock decision of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu side this summer as he joined Italian champions Juventus.
The Portugal captain has signed a four-year contract with Italian side after completing a €100 million transfer.
Therefore, Manchester United legend Giggs has claimed that Bale can fill the void left by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
“Every year there is pressure on him and he has handled it brilliantly,” said Giggs.
“It’s a bit different this year because Cristiano has left and there will be more focus on the players who are going to replace the goals and be in the spotlight because a player like Cristiano has gone.”
“Gareth can handle anything that is thrown at him.”
“This season he has started on fire. There’s never really a time when he is not playing well,” said Giggs.
“I think always the problem with Gareth has been injury, he’s then had to come back and get more game time.”
“But when he plays he always plays well and more or less scores.”
The 29-year-old joined Los Blancos in 2013 from Tottenham and went on to score 90 goals in 192 appearances across all competitions.
