Gareth Bale explains ‘WM’ celebration after Tottenham beat Burnley
Tottenham got back to winning ways in the Premier League as they thrashed Burnley 4-0 on Sunday afternoon with Gareth Bale starring in the game.
The Welshman has hit good form of late and built on it against the Clarets, as he scored two goals. The first one came just a minute into the game as the Real Madrid loanee poked home Son Heung-min’s cross before adding his second with an emphatic finish from just outside the box in the second period.
After he found the back of the net, Bale pulled out his new celebration making ‘WM’ letters with his fingers, in recognition of the work done by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
However, that has taken a different meaning among his teammates at the club. But Lucas Moura, who joined him in celebrations, made an ‘L’ sign instead of ‘WM’. And explaining that, Bale said (h/t Football.london):
“Because everyone is saying ours is Welsh Mafia, he’s decided to go with just Lucas!”
Further speaking on his own form of late, Bale insisted that he was happy that things were starting to fall in place for him at last, after a frustrating start in his second spell at the club.
“Yeah, no, I’m building. Yeah, it’s taken a while, but yeah, I’m happy. I’m growing in confidence, my fitness is getting better and obviously then I think you can see that in my performance.”
