Real Rubbishes Gareth Bale Injury Report

Real Madrid continued to hold the stance that there is no truth to Marca’s claim that Bale is suffering from a slipped disc.

The newspaper reported an MRI scan on the 2nd of September. Incidentally, that was day Bale was presented to Madrid as their player following his move from Tottenham . It was revealed the Welsh was suffering from “a slipped disc on the L5 -S1 vertebrae and a bulge on the L4 -L5”.

It was also reported that he might require surgery. Madrid have made an announcement on their club’s website to say that the report is “complete rubbish”.

The club statement read: “In response to the information that the newspaper Marca has published today regarding the player Gareth Bale, Real Madrid would like to state the following:

1. The information published, claiming that the player has a slipped disc on the L5-S1 vertebrae and a bulge on two others, is completely false.
2. The player does not have a slipped disc, as the club’s medical services stated clearly to the newspaper before the information was published. Surprisingly, the version the doctors offered this media outlet on Thursday 10 October has been omitted.
3. The player Gareth Bale has a small chronic disc bulge, which is extremely common among football players and by no means prevents him from carrying out his professional activity normally.”
Currently, Bale is undergoing a “mini preseason” to ensure that he regains his form and fitness after his transfer to the Spanish giants.
