Bale admits "there is an argument" for his Real Madrid exit

Bale admits

Bale was signed as the long-term replacement for Ronaldo - who looked a goner before his incredible Champions League hat-tricks against Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid last season made him priceless once again.

The European champion was drawn alongside Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL in Group H, but will have to wait until next month for its meeting with the Premier League side.

That being said, there is no team even close to the level of Real Madrid in Cyprus.

And he feared the German champions would get left behind in world football unless they shelved their financial prudence in the transfer market.

The Champions League opener is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

The London club's form at Wembley is no doubt going to be a big issue, but Kane's goals could be the catalyst in a successful campaign according to Shearer.

I'm a different player of course I am.

"I started at Southampton so it will always have that "home" kind of feeling there but I grew up at Tottenham", the Wales hero explained. This is a game that Zidane knows his teams should win and knows that his teams should have a big win. There is no need to adapt to the Champions League but he needs a little bit of time to adapt to the Premier League.

Zinedine Zidane has rejected suggestions Real Madrid are dependent on Cristiano Ronaldo following a stuttering start to their defence of LaLiga in the Portuguese star's absence.

Five English Premier League sides will be contesting the Champions League title this term, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and both Manchester United and City all in the group stages.

Advancing to the knockout stage should be a formality for his new team, which also includes teenage striker Kylian Mbappe in a new-look and exciting forward line.

Neymar, on the other hand, chose to go to PSG in order to escape the shadow of Messi and become the main man and only time will tell whether it was a wise decision by the Brazilian.

At the end of the day, Liverpool are back in the Champions League and we should all expect the unexpected and welcome the improbable.

"But I think the main thing, when you look back on your career, is that you look at your trophies".
