Gareth Bale admits Luck is the key

Gareth BaleTottenham winger Gareth Bale has admitted that he has very little idea where his free-kicks will end up when he hits them.

Bale claims it is just luck although he does try and hit them in the exact same way as Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, however he has no real idea where the ball is going.

The PFA’s Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year award winner said: “I haven’t a clue where it’s going to go.

“You can hit it right and then it goes left. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it looks stupid.

“But it’s a great weapon to have. If I strike it well, it’s got a good chance of troubling the goalkeeper and going in.

“It’s hard to explain how you do it.

“You look at the valve on the ball, the floor, everything, and you just keep practising the technique.

“The first to do it was Juninho at Lyon then Ronaldo took it to the next level.”
