Gareth Bale reveals he's not happy with Mo Salah for one reason


Gareth Bale think this year Puskas Award was swindled

This year FIFA Award held in London saw Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah walked away with the Puskas (Best goal of the year) prize with his strike against Everton last December.

The accolade received came as a surprise to Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, as his Champions League final acrobatic overhead kick was heavily tipped to claim the prize.

Bale's stunner combined with other strikes from him and Kareem Benzema that won Real Madrid the Champions League last year in Kyiv.
And the Welshman believe he's the more deserving recipient.

"It makes the award look a little diminished, although it was obviously a great goal by Salah," Bale said.

"Mine was instinctive, I got my body positioned correctly, got my footwork right, and caught it perfectly.

"When you catch the ball perfectly, you know it’s on target.

"You just have to hope the keeper doesn’t make an unbelievable save.

"So, as soon as I hit it, I knew it had a chance of going in.

"If you watch it, you see my head turn straight away. I knew where the ball was going."

Meanwhile, when he was quizzed on his best goal, he added: “My best goal ever? I think you’d have to say that, there haven’t been too many like that!

"I did love the one in the [2014] Copa del Rey final against Barcelona, but as this one was on such a big stage – the Champions League final, the biggest game in club football – and technically it was the winner, I’d have to say that it’s the best."
