Real Madrid boss Ancelotti calm over Bale injury woes

Real Madrid crock Gareth Bale will remain in Madrid during the international break as he recovers from a thigh injury.

Real coach Carlo Ancelotti indicated the 24-year-old winger would remain in the Spanish capital to continue his rehabilitation, despite being included in Wales' squad for their final two World Cup qualifiers.

"He'll stay here to train for 15 days," Ancelotti was reported as saying on the club's official website.

"We have to co-ordinate with Wales but I think that he'll stay here in the end and train over the 15 days. That way he'll be ready for the match after the break."

Ancelotti admitted that the Bale had become frustrated that he is yet to hit full stride for his new club, but believes the winger will be fit and ready when Madrid host Malaga on October 19.

"He's not happy because he was looking forward to playing," he said.

"He's had a rough patch and that's normal when someone wants to play and can't. He's calm and mentally he's doing well.

"It's a small issue, nothing serious, and it will be taken care of in 15 days."
