Cristiano Ronaldo is full of praise for Real Madrid teammate Gareth Bale.

Ronaldo has taken the former Tottenham winger under his wing.

"He's adapted very well. He's having some tough times because he missed pre-season and is under a lot of pressure to succeed. On top of that, he's had problems with the language. Despite all this, he's been a very useful player, a great player who will bring a lot to the team," said Ronaldo.
