Angry Bale lifts lid on Ronaldo-less Real Madrid

The Wales and Real Madrid star, who scored twice in the UCL final victory over Liverpool (including this stunner) in May revealed that he couldn't believe that goal wasn't on the shortlist for UEFA's Goal of the Season.

Much to his frustration, Bale started on the bench in Kiev but came into the match with the scores locked at 1-1.

Wales global Bale was sent on by then coach Zinedine Zidane with the score at 1-1 after 61 minutes, beating Liverpool keeper Loris Karius with his sensational strike three minutes later.

Looking back on that night in the Ukraine, Bale reflected on the emotions he felt when learning he had not made the starting XI despite his good scoring form in the run-up to the showpiece final.

Bale too has enjoyed a superb start to his season with three goals and three assists in five games, after establishing himself as a starter under new coach coach Julen Lopetegui.

"I always try to put a bit of wobble on the ball", Bale told the Daily Mail.

Bale was coy on the question of whether or not his goal was superior to Ronaldo's, saying: "It's not for me to say!"

The 29-year-old knew he had produced something special after executing such a technically-perfect strike in a couple of instinctive seconds. If you don't try things, things never happen. "It's when you have to make those reaction decisions that you normally tend to get the best results". "Yes, I suppose it's not quite as bad as it looked but I suppose he should save it". You try to make it more hard because if it doesn't go in the corner I always give them a problem if it's right down their throat.

Bale has scored three goals for Los Blancos already this season, and was also on target for Wales during the worldwide break.
