play-off final against


on Sunday, Gareth Bale who is a free agent says his future in football is not dependent on this match.

Bale said:

"Not necessarily, no. Like I've said before, I'm not concentrating on what lies ahead in the future.

"We have a massive game that all my focus is on. I really don't need to think or worry about anything else. I have no other worries. I've got loads of offers!"

Bale played in just seven appearances in all competitions for Madrid this season but says he is ready and fit for the game against Ukraine.

"After training, I have my routines,"

he explained

"When we have the press conference at the Vale, it's convenient. I can do my stuff and get ready for the game.

"Having to take two hours out of my day to get to the stadium didn't quite work. So we did it this way. Apologies but unfortunately the game comes first!”

Former Real Madrid player also said he would not apologize to Ukraine if


beats them and qualify for their first World Cup.

"As horrible as it sounds, no. As it is a game of football and it is a competition that we want to get to as well.

"Everyone in the world feels for Ukraine. It is a sport that unites everybody. We understand what it will do for Ukraine, but we want to get to the World Cup.

"That is not coming from a horrible place. It is coming from our country and hearts as we want to deliver for our own fans."
