Former Real Madrid and Tottenham star Gareth Bale admits he already feels at home with new club Los Angeles FC. The 32-year-old former Real Madrid and Tottenham forward has signed as a free agent after nine years in Spain, with an option to stay for the 2024 season.
Bale arrived in California on Friday and hours later saw his new club host city rivals Los Angeles Galaxy in his first taste of the ‘El Trafico’ derby.
“What an incredible reception I had when I came in,” Bale told ESPN. “The best prep is to play games. “I want to come here. I want to play games and make my stamp and do as best I can to try and help LAFC win a trophy.
“And I can help with the youngsters because it’s a very young team here, give them advice, seeing what I do in terms of professional standard and try to help them.
“The league is a growing league. It was an exciting opportunity I felt was right for me and my family. “It’s very new but it’s something that’s really glamorous. It’s just a very attractive club.”
