Gareth Bale: ‘stupid’ Spurs star signs for Manchester City
THE Daily Bale: Anorak’s daily look at the Tottenham Hotspur player in the news:
The Sports Mole: “Terry Gibson: ‘Gareth Bale would regret not moving to Real Madrid'”
Former Spurs player Gibson told talkSPORT:
“You know what can happen in football. Currently he’s hot at the moment but in a year’s time it may be through injury that his season isn’t successful. It could be a series of niggling injuries and then Real Madrid go away and for the rest of your life and career you’re left thinking ‘Should have I gone to Real Madrid?’
“If he went to Real Madrid he would be a hit. It’s a massive call.”
Bale should go to Real because it’s better to be injured in Madrid than London? Inspiring stuff.
NewsTalks.ie: “Zidane encourages Bale to submit transfer request”
What words of wisdom from Zinedine Zidane, a man who lost his cool and got sent off in the World Cup final?
Zidane, a sporting director at the Bernabeu, told the Sunday People: “I think Real Madrid have made their admiration of Gareth Bale very clear – and it has been made clear that we would not be put off by the cost of the player. But if Gareth feels now is the time to move then he has to have a private discussion with his club and express that he wants to leave.”
Yes, he should do that. That’s a good tip, ZZ. If Bale wants to leave Spurs he should ask to leave. The only reason Bale hasn’t yet done so is because the Welshman had no idea how to behave. But thanks to Zidane, Bale, who used to play for Southampton, now has a clue how the transfer system works. Next week, ZZ teaches Bale how to make a phone call and knock on a door.
But should Bale go to Real, a team that sounds so utterly desperate to sign him?
IBN: “Spurs legend advices Bale to snub Real Madrid for Manchester United”
What is it about former Spurs players wanting Bale to quit the club?
Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale would be better suited remaining in England if he chooses to leave White Hart Lane according to former Tottenham manager and legend Glenn Hoddle.
And go to..?
“Personally, I don’t think Gareth Bale wants to leave yet – unless it was to one of the Manchester clubs. He’s had a new baby and I’m not sure if he’s ready for a move abroad. You have to be settled off the pitch before you get your form on it.”
Wonder how Bale likes being portrayed as being a bit of an idiot who only survive in England? And if being settled is the secret of form, why leave Spurs, where he’s playing brilliantly..?
