“I wish you good luck in your next career.”
Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) supported the future of ‘retired’ Gareth Bale (34).
On the 10th (Korean time), Bale announced the news of his retirement from active duty directly through his social media account.
Bale, who played for Southampton Youth in 2006-2007, later played for Tottenham (2007-2013) and Real Madrid (2013-2022).
At the time, Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid was called the ‘transfer of the century’. He contributed to Real’s three consecutive and five championships in the European Football Federation (IEFA) Champions League (UCL) in a big topic. In particular, in the UCL competition, he showed off his good performance in every big game. 스포츠토토
Bale also went on a steep decline at the end of his Real Madrid days. Evaluations that his professionalism had declined followed. He was even ridiculed for liking golf more than soccer.
After leaving Real Madrid, he joined Los Angeles FC of the American Major League Soccer (MLS) and scored a goal in the final, giving the team the inaugural championship.
“I would like to thank the coaching staff, players and fans of all the clubs I have played for,” said Bale, announcing the news of his retirement on his social media account.
Son Heung-min, who heard the news that he was taking off his familiar soccer boots, cheered on his personal social media account, saying, “Bale is a legend of Tottenham and football.”
