Ancelotti: Bale has got his confidence back

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that the international break has helped Gareth Bale get his confidence back.

Bale has been targeted by both the Spanish press and the Santiago Bernabeu boo boys on account of his inconsistent form this season and he came in for some particularly heavy criticism after a lacklustre showing in the Blancos' last Liga outing, a disappointing 2-1 loss at leaders Barcelona on March 22.

However, the Wales winger was at his brilliant best in his country's Euro 2016 qualifier in Israel last weekend, netting twice in a 3-0 win.

The story is too old to be commented.
