Gareth Bale’s bald patch exposed by rain at Real Sociedad


Gareth Bale was Real Madrid’s saviour for the second week running today, scoring the winner as they claimed all 3 points at Real Sociedad.

After his 2-goal salvo at Rayo Vallecano last weekend, Bale again came up trumps today, powering in a header in the 80th minute.

Heading has really become the Welshman’s forte: he has more headed goals than anyone in Europe this season.

The rain made conditions difficult for Madrid in the Basque Country today, and messed with Bale’s top knot.

As his hair became messy, it exposed a bald patch on the top of his skull.

Players such as Cesc Fabregas and Wayne Rooney have had hair transplants; perhaps that’s a route Bale will go down.

Just to make clear here that we are not making fun of him (going bald can’t be fun, and it can happen to anyone), merely pointing it out, as he’s generally doing a very good job of covering it up.
