Bale's 'genitals' are not a problem

Gareth Bale is struggling with a leg injury and will sit out Real Madrid's Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg with Espanyol on Tuesday night, coach Carlo Ancelotti has announced.

Bale has started Madrid's last three matches, but was taken off at half-time of Saturday's 2-0 league win over Granada at the Bernabeu.

Ancelotti revealed after the match that Bale had been replaced as he 'was not comfortable after getting kicked', but said it was more of a niggle than an injury and expected the world's most expensive player to be fit for Madrid's next match.

However, speaking at a press conference on Monday, Ancelotti confirmed the Wales international was still not 100 per cent and would not be involved against Espanyol, where Madrid hold a 1-0 lead from last week's first leg in Barcelona.

The Italian said: 'Bale felt discomfort in his left leg. His problem isn’t with his genitals'.
