LOLZAZO! Funniest goal of the season contender: Gareth Bale’s karate kick goal v Wigan

The talk is that he is set to be pipped to the PFA Player of the Year award by Luis Suarez, but Gareth Bale can maybe console himself with the  funniest goal of the season accolade.

Bale was like a bloodhound as he spotted Maynor Figueroa and keeper Joel Robles were faffing about with the ball in their box, and decided to press the ball.

Robles looked caught in warm-up mode and was far too casual as he went to clear the ball, and Bale leapt in the air to meet it with a karate kick that a black belt would have been proud of.
