“It's a difficult group but we're ready for the season”.
Gareth Bale, who eventually finished in third place in the vote for the best player in Europe 2015-16, spoke of his "incredible" experience in Monaco: “I was used to watching it on television and to see it live has been unbelievable. Winning the Champions League was amazing and we did well with Wales, we played a fantastic tournament and surprised a lot of people. We were close to getting to the final of the Euros and that was a big confidence boost”.
 “The group we've got with Dortmund, Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw is difficult, as it always is in the Champions League. But we're ready for the season and I'm confident we'll qualify”.

Objective: Cardiff
“I'm working hard every day and it'd be great to get to another Champions League final, which will be in Cardiff this year. That's where we won the last European Super Cup and it'd be fitting to be back there”.
