"He's having a hard time" - Isco on Gareth Bale's injury struggles

Gareth Bale Wales Training Gareth Bale suffers new setback as injury woe continues for Real Madrid star

Real Madrid have reported that Welsh star Gareth Bale has suffered an injury setback, following an issue that has kept him out since early last month.

Bale's injury woes worsened on Friday following news that he is facing up to a month on the sidelines after another setback. However, he has remained at Madrid and has continued to enjoy great success in the UEFA Champions League.

Bale's latest injury is a further blow for Real coach Zinedine Zidane, with attacking pair Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema having struggled in front of goal in La Liga with each finding the target just once so far.

'Gareth has been injured for a long time, ' Madrid ace Isco said before Spain's global friendly against Costa Rica on Saturday.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho conceded before the start of the season the Red Devils would "wait for him" should Bale ever be discarded by Real.

Both AS and rival publication Marca calculated that Bale has until now missed 73 Madrid games through injury since joining the Spanish giants for a then world record 100.7 million euros ($117 million) from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013.

There has been no timeline mentioned yet on his return, however, fans can be assured that they will be seeing a lot more of Isco rather than Bale.
