Gareth Bale back to his best after Real Madrid ordeal, says Chris Mepham

Wales defender Chris Mepham states Gareth Bale is right back to his best in the pitch his off-pitch anxieties have stopped.
Bale, who seemed to be on his way from Real Madrid in the summer before his turn to Chinese team Jiangsu Suning dropped through, has found his way into the strategies of Zinedine Zidane .
Mepham believes that Bale’s future appears to be solved, he will start putting in the performances everybody knows he could for Wales following a year for its national team.
«It is fantastic to see Gaz out to the pitch doing,» Mepham said.
«He had a lot of speculation over the summertime and it’s good he’s got that focus back. When hen’t got the game-time in 12, it was difficult.
«He probably came away with Wales which was his time to shine and, regrettably, he did not contribute with the goals everyone about him wants.
«When we lost the 2 games in Croatia and Hungary I watched him in the dressing room later. He was devastated, as we were, but it only demonstrates just how much it means to him.»
But there is apparently a optimism around the Welsh national team, using a few exciting young players starting to have the chance.
Daniel James’ inventory has skyrocketed since his move.
And David Brooks and are increasingly becoming crucial elements to Eddie Howe’s side, and Harry Wilson are equally with Mepham at heart level using Bournemouth.
Mepham, who has started three games for the Cherries himself this year, believes this will help alleviate the pressure placed on Bale to carry the side.
He explained:»It has been difficult for Gareth with that pressure on you every game, to be the man to get the targets.
«That is why it’s very good to see different lads chipping in — Wilson, Brooks, when he was in the group, also Daniel James.
«Hopefully that takes the pressure off Gareth and we have good attacking options on Friday [against Azerbaijan].»
And while these players could choose the strain of Bale, they could be carrying set-pieces off him.
Harry Wilson is now becoming renowned bagging one from Manchester City this year.
But Mepham backs Champions League-winner and up the Real Madrid guy to retain the responsibility.
Mepham stated:»It’s a conversation I do not want to be involved in!
«Both of them can make that moment of magical. Harry scored against Manchester City and he has done it many times, but so has Gaz.
«If I am betting person I’d have money on Gaz bullying the younger lad from it!»
