Gareth Bale security under microscope

The Football Association of Wales [FAW] insist they will not initiate a formal investigation into enhancing security around Gareth Bale during national team matches.

Gareth Bale waves to the Real Madrid fans.
The public eye is on Gareth Bale more than ever after his world-record move to Real.

Bale, an unused substitute in Wales' 2-1 defeat to Macedonia, was approached by two fans on the pitch as he warmed up during the half-time break.

The FAW pointed the finger at Macedonian authorities for allowing the incident to happen at the Philip II Arena, but will not carry out a review as they feel the responsibility lay with their counterparts in Skopje.

A spokesman for the FAW told Press Association Sport: "There won't be a review. The Macedonians had the responsibility for the stadium security. We are happy with our security but we may have to adapt in the future."

The incident comes at the end of a week when Bale became the world's most expensive player, after joining Real Madrid for €100 million.

Wales manager Chris Coleman concurs that the landscape has changed regarding Bale, and that the authorities may need to adapt.

"We have to sit down and plan differently how we do things because that is what is going to happen," Coleman told the Telegraph. "It's all new to us.

"Gareth has been a great player for two or three years but he's gone to the club where he has with a record move.

"We have to control the circus, it's new territory. We have to handle it and we will. We have people here to look after the players, we've had more this week for obvious reasons.

"But you can't stop everything as we're in a foreign country. You can't control everything.

"We're all proud of Baley and we have to accept what is coming when he is with us. We can't let people use it as a tool against us. I'd rather have it than not."
