But despite his obvious success, his life at the Spanish capital was never truly easy because of his injury woes. Just last season, he sustained five different injuries that sidelined him for nine games in total.
And that was pretty much the continuation of a familiar trend that has persisted throughout the years.
But now it seems that Bale is slowly but surely recapturing the hearts of Real Madrid fans. Just weeks ago, he was one step away from being sold but all of that is seemingly behind him now.
In his latest performance against Villarreal, Bale netted a brace and he also tallied an assist in their league opener a couple of weeks prior to that.
His fine start to the season seems to have induced some affection from a group of supporters who haven’t always warmed to the former Premier League star.
Below, you can see a collection of tweets that show what the fans had to say to Bale after he reached another anniversary at the club.
And it’s fair to say they were full of love for the wing wizard…
We’re proud of you too gazz, just want you to prove all those haters wrong ?
