Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale has reacted to his side’s La Liga 3-1 victory over Celta Vigo on Saturday at Balaidos.
Goals from Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez gave Zinedine Zidane’s side all three points against the host.
Bale, who was named as a surprise starter for Real Madrid against Celta Vigo, set up Benzema’s opening goal for the Los Blancos.
The Welsh international described Real Madrid’s victory over Celta Vigo as great start to the 2019/2020 Spanish La Liga season.
“Vamos! Great start to the season! ⚪️🔝#HalaMadrid,” Bale posted on Twitter alongside pictures of himself with his teammates celebrating.
Bale will now hope to lead Real Madrid to victory when they tackle Valladolid in their next La Liga fixture on August 24 at Santiago Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, speaking ahead of the encounter, Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane had described Gareth Bale as an ‘important player’ in his squad.
“It seemed Bale was leaving and now he’s here with us. The dynamics and things change, but I will count on him, Zidane was quoted by Real Madrid’s official website as saying on Friday in his pre-match press conference.
“He has a good record and is an important player and I hope that all the players want to make it difficult for me to pick the team.”
