Gareth Bale reflects on Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League journey last season

Former Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has opened up on his feelings on the North Londoners’ Champions League journey last season (h/t Football.london).

Tottenham made it to the final of the Champions League last season. Enroute to the final, we played some memorable matches, including the quarter-final second leg against Manchester City and the semi-final comeback against Ajax.

During an interview with Jake Humphrey on BT Sport Throwbacks, Bale, appearing via video link spoke about the Champions League last season (h/t Football.london).

His Real Madrid side lost to Ajax at the quarter-final stages, setting up our semi-final date against the Dutch giants, leading to a memorable outcome. Having been 3-0 down on aggregate, we came back courtesy a second-half hat-trick by Lucas Moura and advanced to the finals on the away-goal rule.

Bale spoke about the game in his interview and what he said will surely delight our fans (h/t Football.london).

“I think everybody loves tuning into watch the CL finals. And obviously Tottenham were there. So, I had a very keen interest and was hoping they would get to the final like they did.

He later went on to add that he was disappointed with the outcome of the final.

“There were some great matches, especially in the semi-finals. But for us Tottenham fans it was a bit disappointing in the final. But you have to look at the bigger picture and they did great to get there and made a good account of themselves.”

The fact that he counts himself among us Tottenham fans and was disappointed by our final defeat to Liverpool, shows that Bale still has our club in his heart.

With his future at Real Madrid in a limbo, a potential return to our club has been mooted. However, given the current financial situation and his massive £600,000-a-week wages, a move would be highly unlikely (h/t Football.london).
