On Monday (9/1), wales striker Gareth Bale announced his retirement from the pitch. However, even though he is considered the greatest player in the history of his country, the athlete's career is surrounded by ups and downs.

How Many Goals Gareth Bale Scored and Titles Won in his Career?

The first club of the striker's career was Southampton, from England. Having debuted in 2006, Bale stayed at the club until 2007, where he appeared in 45 games, contributing five goals and 12 assists.

Still in 2007, the Bale joined Tottenham for five million pounds and left his name marked in the London club during the period in which he played for Spurs. In addition to winning the English League Cup (2007/08), there were 72 goals scored and 58 passes on goal.

With the bombastic passage through Tottenham, Real Madrid signed the Welshman for approximately 101 million euros (about R$ 314 million at the time). And it was at the Real Madrid club that Bale won 16 of the 19 titles in his career.

In addition to 106 goals and 67 assists in 258 matches, Bale formed the incredible BBC trio, composed of him, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, considered by many as the greatest attacking trio in the history of football.

After leaving Madrid, the player moved to Los Angeles FC, MLS club, where he scored just three goals in 14 matches. Even though he scored few goals, the player was decisive in the grand final, where he scored one of the goals, guaranteeing the American League title for Los Angeles.

For the national team, Bale is the holder of the title of the highest scorer in the country's history, with 40 balls in the net in 111 games, and the main responsible for taking the national team to Euro 2020 and to the World Cup in Qatar.
