Four current Tottenham Hotspur stars make the cut as Gareth Bale names dream five-a-side team

Responding on a Twitter Q and A (h/t Evening Standard), Gareth Bale has revealed his best Tottenham Hotspur five-a-side team. Interestingly, he does not include himself in the quintet.

The Welsh winger spent six seasons in North London before leaving for Real Madrid in 2013. Now currently back on loan, he has enjoyed both the highs and lows in the Spurs jersey. Bale shared space with the likes of Ledley King, Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart during his first spell. He now shares the spotlight in a forward line consisting of Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

Selecting five players for his side was no mean feat but the Welshman did just that. By naming himself as the manager, he gave himself more leverage when it comes to naming the team.

Of the five players, Hugo Lloris in goal would be the most obvious. The Frenchman is easily the best Spurs goalkeeper in the Premier League era and was one of the world’s foremost custodians during his peak years.

“I’d go Hugo [Lloris] in goal just because he’s the best I’ve seen in a Tottenham shirt.”

Spurs legend Ledley King also makes the cut. Bale believes the Englishman is the best defender he has seen and would have been destined for greatness had it not been for injuries.

“I would go Ledley King at the back just because he’s the king and he was the best centre-back I’ve ever seen. If it wasn’t for injuries he would have been the best in the world no doubt.”

Two obvious choices and one surprise inclusion

Both Kane and Son have struck up an excellent understanding in the attack and are undroppable whether it be eleven-a-side or five-a-side. To see either player out would have been a surprise.

“I would go up front Harry for the amount of goals he’s scored and he’s an amazing player. Then I’d go me and Sonny beside him. An attacking trio.”

Bale also chose to make himself the manager only to include Tanguy Ndombele in his line-up. A physical presence in the team, his athleticism would add much to the Spurs side.

Bale’s team is balanced in both the attack and the defence and has players who have all proven themselves in white. Of the five, it can be argued that only Tanguy Ndombele has something to prove. The Frenchman will hopefully go on to do just that in the years to come.
