Gareth Bale: Real Madrid had planned faster tempo for seven-goal rout
Gareth Bale said Real Madrid plan to up their tempo after scoring in his return from injury in his side's 7-1 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo deservedly grabbed the headlines with his four goals, but Bale added Real's final tally in the 81st minute after coming on as a substitute.
It was the first game he had played since a calf injury sidelined him in January, and the Welshman said he was glad to be back.
"It's great to return in this way and to score," Bale told reporters. "I have spent four days training with my teammates -- now I have to train well and keep improving
"It's nice to be back and to score, but the most important thing was taking all three points."
Bale said Madrid's dominant win was a result of planning to play at a quicker speed.
"In the dressing room we have talked about playing a faster style so that we can do more damage to our opponents," he said.
"The most important thing was being able to continue building up our confidence and taking three points from the game
"We want to go into our games hand in hand with the fans -- with them we hope to achieve great things."
