Gareth Bale Breaks Silence on Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney's Wrexham FC Offers
Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, the co-owners of Wrexham, had implored Gareth Bale to come out of retirement, but Bale seems to have provided a conclusive reply to their request.
In January, the 33-year-old Welshman announced the end of his prolific playing career, stating that he had been "extremely lucky to have fulfilled my dream."
During his career, Bale won a League Cup with Tottenham and secured three La Liga titles, five Champions League trophies, and a Copa del Rey while playing for Real Madrid.
Gareth Bale, who formerly played for Real Madrid and Tottenham, served as the captain of his national team and played for Wales in the Euro 2016, Euro 2020, and the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar.
Under the guidance of Reynolds and McElhenney, Wrexham achieved the National League title, securing a spot in League Two for the upcoming season.
Bale congratulated the Welsh side on their National League triumph, but it hasn’t stopped Reynolds and McElhenney from trying to coax him out of retirement.
McElhenney has proposed to the former Welsh international that he should "un-retire" and experience "one final magical season" in his illustrious football career.
Reynolds, meanwhile, has hilariously made his ‘offer’ to Bale if the ex-Los Blancos winger makes a U-turn on retirement and arrives at the Racecourse Ground.
“I will shave a professional-grade golf course into Rob’s back if you’ll give Wrexham a season,” he tweeted.
Reynolds added: “Update: after an online image search, it appears Rob does not have the requisite body hair to support this plan.”
Bale, who had a brief spell with Los Angeles FC before his retirement, has dealt a major blow to Reynolds and McElhenney’s bid for him to sign for Wrexham.
When asked at the 2023 Sports Industry Awards if he would consider a U-turn on his retirement and sign for Wrexham, Bale said: “No, I don’t think so.”
