Bale confident in Sterling

Former Tottenham winger Gareth Bale says that he is confident that Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling will be a huge success at a club like Real Madrid at some point in the future. Bale is one high-profile British players to have moved abroad. He plays for Madrid, one of the biggest clubs in the world, after his world-record £ 85 million transfer from the London outfit. Madrid are known to sign quality players for extravagant transfer fees. They have a history of signing players from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool in the past.
Sterling has become one of the important player for Liverpool in the last 18 months. Despite being only 19 years old, the England international has been a key figure towards Liverpool finishing second in the table last season. His important has only grown after the departure of Luis Suarez. Bale was expected to struggle at Madrid like many of the British players to have preceded him, but the 25-year-old has been a huge success playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. The Welshman says that he is confident that Sterling can also replicate his success at the Santiago Bernabeu should a move to the club at some point in the future.
Brendan Rodgers recently said that referees should offer Sterling more protection from the vicious tackles that he is being subjected to. "I think the most important thing is you feel it's the right move. If you feel you're going to play, then I would encourage a British player to go abroad. I've enjoyed every minute of it, the new culture, the new life. I felt like I wanted to challenge myself. It's down to the player himself whether he can kick on. If you look at Raheem Sterling, I think he's shown what a good player he is. He's starting to perform more consistently,” said Bale.
