Real Madrid player, Gareth Bale , hints at an early retirement. His uncertain contract situation at the Santiago Bernabeu, plus Wales’ slim chance of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup were the main causes.

The 2022 World Cup will be played at the end of the year. Real Madrid players who are marginalized must play regularly in order to still be called up by their country.

In the case of Gareth Bale, the situation is complicated. Not only is it difficult to get playing minutes, Wales also still has to struggle in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Play-offs.

According to David Ornstein, journalist for The Athletic , the Welshman will seriously consider retiring from football if Wales do not qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

In addition, his contract at Real Madrid expires this summer, and there seems to be no desire on either side to extend a deal that is often fraught with problems.

This, according to Ornstein, made Gareth Bale no longer excited despite being a Real Madrid star player . Moreover, he enjoyed his ‘career’ more as an amateur golfer than a footballer.

Glass Feet
Gareth Bale is known to have a long history of injury and the problem looks unfinished. This is one of the reasons Madrid wanted to let him go in recent years.

Prior to this, Bale had missed nine weeks through injury. He last defended Los Blancos in the duel against Real Betis, August 28, 2021.

Bale only fully recovered about two weeks ago, but Carlo Ancelotti has not dared to give him a chance to play. Then the international break arrived and Bale left for Wales.

Unfortunately, Bale was hit again by injury and reportedly had to be sidelined for at least the next three weeks.
