The coach of the Wales national football team, Chris Coleman has cleared up all the rumors that were being launched concerning whether or not Gareth Bale was going to be featured in the Euro 2016 qualifying match against Andorra which will take place on September 9.
Not too long ago, Carlo Ancelotti told the public that some of his players cannot perform at the optimal level if they play on an artificial pitch and Gareth Bale was one of those players that he mentioned.
Chris Coleman has gone on saying that if Gareth Bale is fit then he will play against Andorra.
We’ve got to pick our strongest team. He’s Bale has to be in that and Madrid understand that. I always say we look after the players. We make sure we try to send them back in the condition where they’re going to be fit to play. This is a different type of pitch, if this goes ahead, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to pick Gareth. If Gareth’s available he’s going to play in the team.”
When Wales completes their match against Andorra they will also be locking horns with Bosnia-Hercegovina and Cyprus on October. All of these are qualifying matches for the 2016 Euro’s which will be hosted in France.
