The winger was questioned on the pitch about whether qualification will delay his retirement.
Just because Bale doesn’t have a team right now doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a future. The Welsh winger never tires of answering questions about what he will be doing in the coming months and he did so after the World Cup play-off match.
Wales booked their ticket to the World Cup by beating Ukraine by the narrowest of margins and a goal that came courtesy of Yarmolenko getting his head to the ball and misdirecting it wide.
At the final whistle, Bale went completely mad. He celebrated the qualification alone, clenching his fists and letting out his anger, but he also celebrated with his teammates. He also went to talk to players like Zinchenko, whom he knows from the Premier League.
When the microphone was put in front of him and he was asked if the qualification postpones his retirement, which has been talked about these days, Bale replied with a smile.
“Can we say we postpone retirement for a little while?” a journalist asked him, to which Bale replied: “For a little while”.
