Former Tottenham Star Opens Up Why He Left The White Hart Lane

Former Tottenham Hotspur man Gareth Bale has signed a new contract that will keep him at La Liga giants Real Madrid till 2022. The Welshman was expected to sign a new deal this season and this should put to rest any rumour of him moving away from Madrid.

Bale joined the La Liga club back in 2013 after spending six seasons at White Hart Lane and the 27-year-old was probably one of the best players in the world during that period. Madrid signed him up for a then world-record fee of £85.1 million and even though he had a tough start to his life in Madrid, Bale has been an important player for Los Galacticos.

The forward did speak up as to why he left Tottenham to join Real Madrid and was quoted by the Express as saying:

“It has changed me quite a lot, it has made me grow up more as a person,” Bale said. The reason why I came to Madrid was to try something new, a new experience.

“History tells you when British players travel abroad it is not always successful. I’m very happy here and that is why I have signed a new six-year deal. “

The Welshman also stated that he would want to see out his contract at Madrid.

“I’m very happy here and feel more comfortable every year that I am here. I’m improving my Spanish and fully intend to see out my contract here and for the next six years I expect to be here.”

Champions League glory for the Welshman

Bale did move to Spain for the trophies as well and stated that winning the Champions League (twice) was an incredible achievement.

“Winning the Champions League is the pinnacle, it has that special feeling here. Those moments were incredible for me.”

Speaking about his tough initial spell at Madrid, the former Spurs man said he would always fight for a place in the side and isn’t someone who gives up easily.

“The most important thing is how you react when things are difficult. It is easy to pack up leave and go elsewhere but it takes more character to stay here and fight. I will always fight for this club.”

La Liga title calling for Bale

While Bale has picked up a number of trophies at Madrid, he still has not been able to win a La Liga title with Real. Los Galacticos are a couple of points ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga table and the forward believes the current Real Madrid side can win it all.

“I’m very happy. When I first came here I wanted to succeed and win trophies so to be sitting here extending my contract is another dream come true.

“I believe we can keep winning Champions Leagues and leagues. We want to win everything.”

Bale, however, has not had a blistering start to this season. This was expected as the forward was part of the Wales team that made it to the semis of Euro 2016. The forward has scored four goals and has one assist to his name this campaign but you can be sure he will be looking to do more for Madrid as he looks for that elusive La Liga title.
