Gareth Bale: Real Madrid forward ruled out for longer with calf injury

Real Madrid and Wales forward Gareth Bale has suffered another injury setback that could see him sidelined for a further month.

The Welshman, who had recovered from an issue with his soleus, has not played since September 26th and did not excercise on Friday at Valdebebas as he was undergoing tests after suffering a hamstring injury.

It is a huge blow for Bale who is gaining an unwanted reputation for being persistently injured.

The 28-year-old has made 159 appearances during that period, scoring 70 goals.

Bale has only just been declared fit to return to action for Real after the worldwide break.

"He has been diagnosed with a fibrillar rupture in the middle third of the adductor longus muscle of the mentioned leg. Update pending".

The club did not specify a timeline for his return, but Marca reported Bale would miss "a few weeks".

Bale has won 10 trophies with Real, including one La Liga title and the Champions League on three occasions.

A trip to Athletic Bilbao and a home match against Sevilla in LaLiga come either side of the latter contest before Madrid begin their Club World Cup campaign in Abu Dhabi on December 13.
