Real Madrid wish Gareth Bale Happy 25th birthday with some cake & a video montage

Whether it was to ward off any Yaya Toure -like shenanigans is unlikely, but Real Madrid have made a fuss of Gareth Bale on his 25th birthday.

Perhaps due to the fact that Bale is one of the only Real Madrid stars not still on a post-World Cup holiday, Los Blancos have produced a fair amount of content around the Wales international today.

First off, there was a cake in the dressing room – see picture above.

Followed by a video montage of Bale’s best bits last season, his first at the Bernabeu, which included two cup final goals and plenty of breathless runs and left footed strikes.
