After scoring a tremendous overhead kick goal and that too against Liverpool in the Champions League final, everyone would have thought this goal will be the goal of the season. However, UEFA gave a shock to everyone, as Bale’s goal didn’t even get nominated for the award.

While Cristiano Ronaldo won the award for the same type of goal against his current side, Juventus. Along with many, the Welshman himself doesn’t have any clue why he wasn’t on the list.

“I don’t know how it wasn’t on that list! I want to know who is on the panel because they want to be sacked.”

Despite being on form and scoring goals, Bale came on as a second-half substitute in the Champions League final. The forward revealed he was angry for not getting the opportunity to start in the final. He further talked more about how he scored the significant goal.


“Angry — quite angry, to be honest. Obviously, I felt I deserved to start the game. I’d been scoring goals. So yeah, I suppose it was hard to put the anger aside.”

“You know you are in a situation where, if you’re going to get closed down, you have to try something. “If you don’t try things, things never happen. If you have time to think about it, it doesn’t come off. I knew exactly where the ball went, and you can see in the video my head turns to look exactly where the ball is going. As soon as I hit it, I knew it was good.”

Bale’s statement on Ronaldo also came into the spotlight, as he somehow took a dig at his former team-mate.

“Obviously it’s going to be a little different from having such a big player there. It’s maybe a bit more relaxed, yes. I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player.”
