Spurs news: Gareth Bale reveals that he enjoyed watching Arsenal players while growing up

Former Tottenham star Gareth Bale was the latest player to be part of BT Sport’s ‘What I Wore’ series.

The Welshman left Tottenham for Real Madrid but was one of the best players in the Premier League during his final two seasons with Spurs.

Bale was seen holding an Arsenal “Henry” shirt and added that he also watched Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp too (h/t Daily Mail):

“I used to watch Arsenal a lot and I really enjoyed watching people like (Thierry) Henry.

“I used to like watching Dennis Bergkamp as well. They had a great team – Tottenham fans won’t be happy that I am holding this!”

Giggs a massive influence

Possibly the best Welsh player during the Premier League era would be Ryan Giggs. The former Manchester United star is now managing the Welsh national side, and Bale spoke about the winger’s influence on his career.

“He was a massive influence – he was my hero growing up! Obviously being Welsh, left-footed and I looked up to him a lot.”

Bale further claimed that he used to shout out that he was Giggs when playing with other children, but reminded everyone that he didn’t have as hairy a chest as the former United man.

The Welsh winger also spoke about his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. The pair won several trophies together but the Portuguese star left Madrid for Juventus this season.

Bale added that the pair got on really well and praised the now Juventus attacker for being an incredible player.

The Welsh winger hasn’t had a great season for Madrid so far, but the entire team has struggled. Zinedine Zidane is back managing the club, and hopefully, Bale gets back to his best in the Spanish capital.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
