Here’s to the Telegraph, first to market with the coveted and first “post-Maicon” Gareth Bale interview.
You can read it all here.
On Maicon: “He’s a nice guy. Every time he kicked me, he said sorry,”
On his awareness of his dazzling Champ’s League performance this week: “I don’t know the full extent of what people are talking about. I’ve had my mum ring me up and say stuff but I’ve not taken too much attention.”
On levelheadedness: “I’m a normal person. I’ve still got my friends from school and they were at the game last night.”
