Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane hopes Gareth Bale can maintain his fine goalscoring form - but not at the expense of his defensive duties.
Wales forward Bale scored a hat-trick as Real beat Deportivo La Coruna in Zidane's first match in charge.
The 26-year-old has now netted eight goals in his past four league games.
"I am happy with his contribution. It isn't easy to score three goals and we hope he continues like that," said Zidane, who succeeded Rafael Benitez.
"Gareth has to do the same as everyone else. When we don't have the ball he has to defend, then when we have it he can open the game up and play on the wing.
