RAMOS DESCRIBES BALE'S IMPACT AT REAL MADRID AS ''FRIGHTENING'' WHILE ADMITING THAT HE NEVER KNEW OF HIM BEFORE''
Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos has described team mate Gareth Bale as 'frightening' after the former Tottenham star player made an instant impact debut against Vilarreal
The most expensive player in the world scored on his debut for Los Blancos against the yellow submarine - an instant impact following his £86million switch from White Hart Lane.
And Bale has also been a huge hit in training, leaving his new team-mates stunned at his impeccable talent and trickery.
Ramos, who also admitted that he knows very little of Bale said of the Welshman:
'Of course Gareth Bale has been the biggest transfer of the summer - and we are glad now that he is with us.
'The truth is because he did not play for a team in England that played in the Champions League - we did not know that much about him.
'We know if he the coach wanted him that strongly he must be a good player - but nobody was prepared for how special he is.
'It has only been a few training sessions we have seen him in - but some of what we see we can't believe. He is so fast, so tricky, and the frightening thing is that he is not even 100 per cent game fit yet.'
Real Madrid begin their bid to land their 10th Champions League title this week, the 'Decima' crown Los Blancos so desperately desire.
And Ramos is confident Carlo Ancelotti now has the squad which can land the European which has eluded them for 11 years.
