Real Madrid coach Zidane delighted for Bale after wonder goal: A turning point?

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane feels Gareth Bale's superb goal in victory at Real Sociedad can be a turning point for the Welshman.

Bale ran with the ball for 70 metres before finishing past La Real goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.

Zidane enthused: "It is sure to be a turning point, I do not think it's a release, he needed to score goals, but it was not just the goal, he worked a lot in defense, he made things phenomenal and I'm happy."

He continued: "For me it's not his best version, I know we're going to find Bale little by little, I know he can do a lot better, but we have to be patient, as I said before the game."
