Wales coach Chris Coleman admits Gareth Bale is not fit enough to play 90 minutes in the World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Serbia. The 24-year-old flew back to Cardiff on Monday night, having been unveiled to the Real Madrid fans at the Bernabeu at lunchtime following his 100million Euro move from Tottenham.
Coleman told a press conference in Cardiff: "If he is not ready we will not risk him, regardless of whether it is a world-record fee.
"We are aware a lot of people will want to see him play in the home game against Serbia.
"But he has no chance of playing 90 minutes on Friday or on Tuesday."
