“I’m Very Proud I Played In The MLS” – Gareth Bale Opens Up On MLS Experience

Written by Patrick Echatah

Gareth Bale won championships with Los Angeles FC to cap off his stellar club career, and it seems the Welshman will never forget the experience.

The storied former winger cemented his reputation as one of the greatest players of his generation during a spectacular, trophy-filled tenure at Real Madrid. After shining for Wales at the World Cup in Qatar and capping off his club career with the MLS Cup, he would eventually decide to hang up his boots.

The seasoned great, who has a tendency for scoring in championship games, tied the score against Philadelphia Union in the championship game with a stunning injury-time goal. His crucial header in the 128th minute, which tied the score at 3-3, forced a penalty shootout, which LAFC ultimately won.

He only made five league appearances in his final season in Madrid before moving to the US, and in 13 games for LAFC, he scored three goals. The 34-year-old has since thought back on his hectic six-month playing career in California.

Speaking to Uproxx, he explained how he felt he had a point to prove upon his arrival in MLS, saying: “I felt like I still had something to give, otherwise, I wouldn’t have come over. I wouldn’t have come over just to see my career out.”

John Herdman has been officially named the new coach of MLS based club Toronto FC. Starting on October 1st, the 48-year-old will take over as Toronto FC’s next head coach in the MLS.

Herdman became the coach of Canada in January 2018 before leading the North American giants to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, their first appearance in 36 years.

“I’m keen to start this new opportunity with Toronto FC,” he said. “It’s the right time for a new challenge.” Toronto fired former head coach Bob Bradley in June and are currently towards the bottom of the MLS standings.
