London [UK], Oct 11 (ANI): Ahead of a friendly match against Spain, Welsh footballer, Gareth Bale has been ruled out from the national side due to "muscular fatigue."

Confirming the same, Wales coach Ryan Giggs said that the injury is not serious but they do not want to take the risk with their star winger.

"Gareth has got a little bit of muscle fatigue and he won't be involved against Spain. We don't want to take any risks and we are monitoring it every day," quoted Giggs, as saying.

The 29-year-old had sustained the injury while playing during a match between his club, Real Madrid, and Spanish football club, Alaves, last week.

Hopeful Giggs, however, predicted that Bale will make the Nations League match against Ireland on coming Tuesday and that he would be fit for Real Madrid's next game against Levante.

Wales are slated to play a friendly match against Spain on October 12. (ANI)
