Gareth Bale has announced his retirement from football

Gareth Bale’s retirement letter

Gareth Bale born July 16, 1989(33), has decided to put an end to his illustrious footballing career. The Welsh international who started off as a left-back enjoyed one of the best footballing careers anyone could ever ask for.

Gareth Bale scored a whopping 227 goals in 647 appearances across his illustrious career. His most productive stint was with Real Madrid after his record-breaking transfer from Tottenham Hotspur where they paid £80 million for his signature. He scored 107 goals in 258 appearances and also won 5 Uefa champions league with Los Merengues.

Although his latter time at Real Madrid was overshadowed by criticism from the Spanish press for his unwillingness to learn the language, that did not change the fact that he had a wonderful stint at the club side.

During his active years, he was unarguably the best Welsh footballer player. He scored 41 goals in 108 appearances and thereby became the all-time leading scorer for the Welsh national team. To stamp his reputation, he won the welsh footballer of the year 6 times before calling it quits.

He eventually left Europe after enduring difficult times due to his constant injuries to enjoy a short time in the United States of America with Los Angeles FC.

It was indeed a happy ending as he led Wales to the FIFA World Cup since their previous appearance in 1958. He also confirmed that playing at the World Cup with Wales was his greatest achievement.
