Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is grateful for the support he's received this season.

The former Tottenham star says coach Carlo Ancelotti and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo have helped him settle in Madrid.

"He (Ancelotti) has helped me a lot. As a coach he has given us the idea of trusting our chances and having faith in our potential and that has helped us to keep improving in the areas we're working on.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is simply the best player in the world, he is completely extraordinary and it really helps me being part of a strikeforce that includes him".
