How the Ghanaian footballing community reacts to the news of Gareth Bale’s injury
FourFourSeconds ago FourFourEight started its coverage of the World Cup and the latest news from around the globe.
Today, we are delighted to welcome former England manager Gareth Bale to FourFourOne to talk about his time in charge of England, what it was like to lead them to glory in 2010, and what it’s like to now be the man leading them.
It’s been a great pleasure for me to join FourFour Two.
I’m honoured to be the first of our football journalists to have such a wonderful opportunity to work with the world’s best, and I look forward to sharing the story with you.
What do you make of the news that Gareth Bale has suffered a setback in his recovery?
I think he’s done well.
It’s an incredible honour to be part of this great journey he’s been on and the work he’s put in over the past year has been immense.
I’ve always admired his work ethic and his professionalism.
I think it’s a testament to the work that he has done for his country, but I think he’ll do just fine.
I hope he can get back on the pitch, which is obviously something he’s really wanted to do, but we’ll see.
The good news is that he’s got a lot of time to recover and to get ready for his next challenge.
He has worked really hard over the last year and I think the doctors have all given him the best chance of a successful comeback.
What has been the toughest part of managing England and the national team?
I don’t think there’s any harder challenge in sports.
It has been a big responsibility, but that doesn’t make it any easier.
You have to get up every morning and you have to go to work every day.
You can’t have your head down and not do your job.
You’ve got to be up there every single day.
The biggest challenge for me has been playing as a manager and then managing a team, especially a World Cup team.
You try to get as much out of your players as you possibly can and if they don’t perform then you have a lot to look at.
The players will be in the best possible condition, but it’s hard work.
How do you manage that?
It’s the hardest job you can ever do, so it’s not something you’re used to doing.
But I think everyone has done it at some stage in their career.
I’d have to say I’ve had the best job in my life.
The best compliment you could give him is that it is the biggest challenge he’s had in his career, which has been huge.
He’s been the manager of the England team since 2010 and the manager that won the World Cups in 2010 and 2011.
But he’s also managed in Germany and France, in Spain, in Germany, Spain and Italy.
He’s played in all of those places and he’s coached in the World Championships in Brazil.
It hasn’t always been easy, but he’s handled it amazingly well.
He never complains, he’s always upbeat, and he really is the best in the world at what he does.
I know he’s very proud of what he’s achieved, and when he has a moment of inspiration, he’ll go into his office and he’ll look at his notes and he will look at the players and say: “This is what I have done and I’m so proud of it.”
I think it speaks volumes about what Gareth is capable of.
When you see him in the dressing room, you can’t help but think: “Oh, he really has the world on his shoulders.”
What he does is a huge challenge for him, but also for the whole team.
He brings everything that England have to offer to the team, and it’s incredible to see him perform as well as he has.
The other big challenge for Gareth is playing against the best teams in the country, because he’s a natural player, he has such a high quality of football, he is always in the right place at the right time.
He knows the way to win games.
But his game has always been so good and he can always get it right.
What is the reaction of your readers to the injury news?
There’s a lot going on, and that’s why I think Gareth’s got to have his confidence.
He hasn’t had a great run of games and he knows that.
He feels very, very confident and has always had that sort of level of confidence and he feels really positive.
But at the same time, he doesn’t expect that he will be able to play.
We all know he’ll get a chance and that will be very exciting for him.
The best thing for him is to play and get a taste of what it is like to be in that position, so hopefully that doesn�t happen and he plays well and it goes well.
What does it mean to be back in your hometown?
