Gareth Bale has become a businessman. The Welshman has decided to launch his own range of beers to celebrate Wales’ return to the World Cup after a 64-year absence.
As the Qatar World Cup approaches, the FC Los Angeles wanted to commemorate his country’s return to the world of football.
The Welshman has announced that the beer will go on sale from Monday in Wales. The beer has two versions, “Bale Ale” and “Bale lager” and will cost $2.
He also explained that the idea is that next year it will be exported to the United States, with the idea of promoting it first in Los Angeles, the city where Ball Lives.
As a result, the former Real Madrid player has entered the business world, as his time as a footballer is coming to an end.
After signing for LAFC, it was thought he would return to football, but his impact in California has yet to be felt.
A project for a good cause
The five-time European champion has indicated that part of the proceeds will go to investing in grassroots football in Wales.
“With this project we aim to give something back to Welsh football and in particular we want to help develop football facilities across Wales at grassroots level,” he said.
“I hope Wales fans can enjoy Bale Ale and Bale Lager as we play in this year’s World Cup.”
An alarming confession
Injuries have been a major issue for him in recent years and in MLS he hasn’t been able to find the physical form to perform as he would like for 90 minutes.
“I haven’t played 90 minutes yet and I’m working towards that goal. I think we’re on the right track. Of course I want to play 90 minutes each time, but I understand that I have to prepare myself physically and c It’s something I haven’t done in the last few seasons,” he said.
