• Bale sets for three weeks out with calf injury


    MADRID: Real Madrid’s Welsh winger Gareth Bale has suffered a calf injury, the club confirmed on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), which could rule him out for three weeks. Bale limped off with what looked like the recurrence of the calf problem which has plagued him over the past two years, after scoring his 11th goal in eight games during Real’s 5-1 rout of Sporting Gijon on Sunday. And tests carried out in Madrid’s Sanitas La Moraleja hospital on Tuesday confirmed a muscle injury in the right leg, the club said in a brief medical statement. Since December 2013 the 26-year-old has had five injuries to the same calf muscle.
