Ryan Giggs backs Gareth Bale to reignite career at Tottenham Hotspur
One of the most devastating wingers on his day, the Welshman was sorely underutilized by Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid. Despite picking up a number of honours, Bale was far from his best in recent seasons.
Unlike at Real, Bale will get more opportunities at Spurs. Alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, he could form a potentially devastating attacking trio.
With the European Championships set to be held next summer, the prospect of Bale at his best will have Giggs licking his lips in anticipation. Tottenham is where the 31-year-old made a name for himself. His return is nothing short of a homecoming. (h/t Sky Sports)
“I think it’s a good move for Gareth, it’s good for Spurs. He’s at a club he knows well with a very good manager and I think he’s said himself it’s like going back home.”
Jose Mourinho had attempted twice in the past to land the winger. Having now finally got him, it remains to be seen if the Portuguese can bring him back to his best.
Fans will however have to wait a little longer to see Bale take to the pitch as a Spurs player. He is currently nursing a knee injury and will also miss Wales’ Nations League fixtures against Ireland and Bulgaria this month.
