Gareth Bale is a professional footballer from Wales, whom I have greatly admired since I was 15 years old.
Bale plays as a winger, currently for both the Spanish club Real Madrid and for the Wales National Team. He is known for being one of the fastest players, having great ability to easily get past defenders and for winning three Champions League trophies back to back.
Bale has been described by his peers as “a footballer with tremendous speed, great crossing ability, a great left foot and exceptional physical qualities.”
In 2011 and 2013, he was named PFA Player of the Year, and later in 2013 he was named Premier League Player of the Season and FWA footballer of the year.
He is reported to earn $150 million over the next six years, which means he takes home $350,000 a week after taxes.
Gareth Bale has always been a great role model to me because he is the greatest footballer in the world in my eyes and has always been a personal inspiration to me playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world with great success.
