Wayne Hennessey believes that Gareth Bale is in good shape ahead of his 100th cap for Wales. The forward received his 99th cap in their draw against Estonia in September. He suffered a hamstring injury after that and has not been featured since then. He trained with the Welsh squad on Tuesday and will play a part in their crucial qualifying games against Belarus and Belgium in their World Cup qualifying campaign. Bale was set to be included in the match squad against Real Valladolid last weekend but he failed a late fitness test.
“He’s looking very well,” Wayne Hennessey said about Gareth Bale. “He’s in good shape, he’s smiling and laughing – and when you get Gaz like that he’s fantastic to be around. He looks after himself very well. He’s always in the gym doing stuff and keeping up on his fitness. He’s very particular about what he eats. He looks after his body and is in good shape.”
“What he can do on a football field is absolutely amazing. Everyone knows his talent but he’s a special guy and a special person. He’s down to earth and fame will never change him.” he added. “He’s a fantastic leader, a leader we’ve enjoyed, and who can hopefully keep leading us. People don’t see that side of him when he’s in the dressing room. He’s vocal, he has got a fantastic football brain and he’s played at the highest level. I’ve known Gareth for a long time and he’s just a pure gentleman.”
