Former Real Madrid striker Michael Owen is backing Gareth Bale to be successful under coach Rafa Benitez.
Owen worked with Benitez at Liverpool. "I spent very little time with Rafa at Liverpool, but I can say that he is a very good coach," Owen said.
"I thought that Bale had a decent start to his career at Real Madrid. He's quiet and shy by nature, but I think that the more fit and confident he is, he'll improve even more. He's a world class player."
