Transfer Balls: Spurs’ Gareth Bale dresses as a pink dick to say goodbye in Madrid
The Sun, August 28:
“GARETH BALE has told pals his Tottenham career is over – and that is why he failed to turn up at training yesterday.”
That’s an “exclusive”.
The Sun, August 3, 2013:
“SPURS players asked Gareth Bale to autograph their shirts in an emotional farewell.”
So. Bale’s already said goodbye to his teammates a few weeks ago. Was that not a clue that he wouldn’t be training with them again?
Bale missed the friendlies against Monaco and Espanyol. He has also missed Premier league games against Crystal Palace and Swansea,and a Europa League tie against Dinamo Tbilisi. Why? Because he has a bad foot, so they say.
In other news, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas says he could fine Bale for his no-show:
“He is involved in a big transfer move to Real Madrid and in the end if it happens, we wish him all the best, but the fact that he hasn’t turned up is not the correct behaviour. That is the position [Bale] chose to take and it’s up to the club to decide if it’s a fineable offence. I gave the player the weekend off, Monday was a day off for the squad.”
That from the man who said the Spurs chairman has given him the “guarantee” that Bale would not be sold.
