Gareth Bale looking in great shape during Real Madrid’s 1st training session at UCLA [Video]
- July 23, 2014
Real Madrid have been allocated the use of UCLA’s training facilities for the LA leg of their US tour, and they had their first session on the college campus this morning.
Carlo Ancelotti took the session along with Paul Clement, while Ancelotti’s new assistant boss Fernando Hierro looked on.
The camera focused in on Xabi Alonso and Gareth Bale during the mini-game, and the Welshman’s clearly been hitting the weights over the summer, looking in great shape at this early stage.
Neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor new signing James Rodriguez are on the US tour, so it’s a chance for some of the fringe players to impress Ancelotti ahead of next season.
