World-record signing Gareth Bale finally put in a man-of-the-match display in his full home debut for Real Madrid. The 24-year old grabbed a brace and set up two goals to lead the Whites to victory against Sevilla – with Madrid running out 7-3 winners.
After manager Carlo Ancelotti previously felt the Welsh international would initially struggle to adapt in Spain, his performance in midweek was the perfect response to silence any critics.
Being the most expensive signing brings its own pressure, and Bale has been unfairly criticised on a number of occasions for his slow start to his Madrid career – most recently following a lacklustre display against fierce rivals Barcelona.
However, after showcasing exactly what he was signed for this summer, Ancelotti now feels Gareth Bale can take La Liga by storm. With three goals and two assists from five league games, the forward has finally shown signs he was worth such outlay. »
