"I didn't really have a favourite... They were all superstars and I just loved watching Real Madrid, it was a great team to watch.

"I don't feel I need to make a statement to anyone. I know what I'm capable of and I just want to keep enjoying my football. When I do that I play my best," he said.

Bale was asked about his future and although he failed to rule out a move, he said he was happy where he was for the moment.
