MOST COMMENTED

Doctor Avelino Parajon has told Real Madrid-supporting sports daily Marca that Real Madrid should never have signed Gareth Bale had the club known about the disc protrusion in his back. Real doctor Carlos Diez confirmed last week that the world record signing suffered from the ailment, but was swift to add that it is not an unusual injury for a soccer player.

Nevertheless, Parajon said: "If Real Madrid have signed Gareth Bale knowing about this protrusion, they have committed an error. That is not to say that tomorrow it can be operated on and he can continue playing, like has happened many times. But if he already has problems with protruding discs, that indicates that it is not a one-off.” He continued: "When a person has those problems at that age, it suggests that he has a great possibility of suffering herniated discs and symptoms arising from that over time. It is a bad sign for any athlete."

Diez, however, claimed there is nothing to be worried about. "When Bale had his medical no clinical condition was discovered, just a radiological finding. There’s no threat that he will need surgery, although, of course, to avoid any problem, he is undergoing a preventative recovery program because we are obliged to make sure the player is protected and make sure this discovery doesn’t become anything bigger.”
