Interim Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari has urged Gareth Bale to enjoy himself ahead of his first game in charge. Bale has been heavily criticised this season, with many claiming he should be doing more since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club.

The Wales international was part of the side that lost 5-1 to Barcelona in El Clasico and that result cost Julen Lopetegui his job.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s meeting against Real Valladolid, Solari has urged the 29-year-old to enjoy the occasion as he tries to get the best out of him.
He told reporters: “Bale is under the spotlight and I hope he shows us his enormous talent. We want to enjoy him every day, he’s a fantastic player.”
