Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos admits he is surprised by the impact Gareth Bale has made in his first few days as the world’s most expensive footballer.
Bale scored on his Real Madrid debut at Villarreal on Saturday and Ramos conceded he has been taken aback by the Welsh midfielder whose talents have been overlooked by some in the dressing room he now frequents.
“The truth is because he (Bale) did not play for a team in England that played in the Champions League, we did not know that much about him,” stated Ramos about the former Tottenham star.
“We know if the coach wanted him that strongly he must be a good player, but nobody was prepared for how special he is. We are glad now that he is with us.
“It has only been a few training sessions we have seen him in, but some of what we see we can’t believe.
“He is so fast, so tricky, and the frightening thing is that he is not even 100 per cent game fit yet.”
