The football community is delighted that former most expensive player Gareth Bale is set to return to training this week.

It has been tough for the community after Ryan Mason was operated on after he fractured his skull whilst in action for Hull City against Chelsea this past week.

The Real Madrid player who is just coming out of his own suffering took to his Twitter handle to support Mason.

“Get well soon Mase!! Thoughts are with you and your family, stay strong!!! @RyanMason,” he tweeted.

The Welsh player is not expected to return to competitive football anytime soon but he would train with his teammates this week, reports say.

The player picked up an ankle injury that has almost killed the season for him after he struggled with top form at the start of the season. He is set to leave rehab and start his recovery since the incident in November. The 2016/17 season has been completely different for the player compared to his 2015/16 season.

He was operated on late November but would now return to the Valdebebas training ground for faster recovery. He is expected to start playing with the ball from February. However it is very unlikely that the Euro 2016 semi finalist would return in time for their Napoli clash mid February but he could stand a chance for the second leg in early March.

Bale would likely play a series of games in the La Liga as the club would rely a lot of him with defender Marcelo picking up an injury and playmaker Luka Modric sidelined. The Croatia international’s injury is not as bad as feared but the player might take time to regain his best form.

Coach Zinedine Zidane is having a tough time at the moment as he looks at becoming the first coach to do the back to back Champions League win and the La Liga points’ difference seem to be reducing in a season he wants it so bad.
