Carlo Ancelotti says he may play Bale on his favored left wing v Sociedad with Ronaldo rested [Video]

Gareth Bale has come in for some pretty scathing criticism during losses in form in this his first season in Spain, but it’s often been forgotten he’s technically being played out of position on the right.
With Cristiano Ronaldo having tacit ownership of that position, Bale has had to adapt to life on the right, which has been a learning curve.
With Ancelotti opting to rest Cristiano for this weekend’s game against Sociedad, Carletto intimated in his presser today that he may play Bale on the left for this game, which should see him unshackled and playing much more comfortably.
