Wales star Gareth Bale has revealed that he is enjoying football after joining MLS side Los Angeles FC in the summer.
The former Tottenham winger left Real Madrid at the end of last season after his contract ran out following a trophy-laden spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He is delighted to be given the opportunity to enjoy himself on the pitch ahead of leading Wales to their first-ever World Cup.
"It's nice to be playing, nice to kind of just be in a place where I feel wanted and just enjoy myself now," the Welsh captain said, adding that he's working hard to arrive at this year's tournament in top physical form.
"The plan is just to be 100 percent to help LAFC first and foremost.
"Ultimately, that will lead to me being 100 percent fit for the World Cup."
The 33-year-old has made 11 appearances for Los Angeles FC in the MLS, with two goals to show.
Bale spent nine years at Real Madrid winning every available trophy, but he was not able to win some sections of the team’s supporters, and he also struggled with fitness.
He is set to lead Wales in the Uefa Nations League games against Belgium and Poland in the international window.
