Paul Robinson has had nothing but words of praise for Gareth Bale following the winger’s sublime showing against fellow league side Southampton in their Premier League clash on Wednesday. Tottenham hosted Southampton at the Tottenham Stadium in what was Ryan Mason’s first game as the manager in charge of the London club and he saw his side overturn a 1-0 deficit to record a 2-1 comeback win.
Bale was agreeably one of the best players on the pitch on the night and he wrapped up a fine performance by appearing on the scoresheet. Robinson was particularly impressed by Bale given how hard it was for the 31-year-old attacked to start games when Portuguese manager José Mourinho was still in charge of the club.

The future of Gareth Bale was in serious doubt until this weekend when he finally announced his second coming at Tottenham Hotspur. The Welsh international player had been a shadow of himself in his second spell at Tottenham Hotspur until this weekend when he announced himself with two goals and one assist during the 4-0 thumping of Burnley at home on Sunday. Gareth Bale re-signed for Tottenham Hotspur on loan from Real Madrid last year, seven years after he had left the club for the same Spanish La Liga outfit for a then world-record fee of £85.3m. Since his return to Spurs, manager Jose Mourinho has not played him regularly but that could change now after his heroics at the weekend. His performance against the Clarets would have gone a long way to convince the Spurs heirarchy about signing the Welshman on a permanent deal at the end of his loan spell this summer. He had scored one goal in the league and was looking largely unfit due to a lack of playing time until the last one week.
Tottenham Hotspur forward Gareth Bale is said to be keeping tabs on events at parent club Real Madrid and that he wants a final season with the Spanish champions. This is according to the various reports emanating from the media in Spain and the United Kingdom. Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player but he’s on loan at Tottenham Hotspur for this season for his second spell in North London. Gareth Bale was a Spurs player until Real Madrid paid a record transfer fee of £85.3m to sign him in 2013.
His return to Spurs at the start of this season has not yielded the expected results especially for the player as he has been left out of the team on several occasions by manager Jose Mourinho. The Welshman has featured in just nine of the 22 Spurs games in all competitions and he has two goals to show for his troubles, one in the Europa League and the other one in the Premier League. Gareth has played a total of 509 minutes for Spurs under Jose Mourinho this season. He’s said to be paying close attention to the developments at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale has admitted that there was a sense of frustration of not starting regularly prior to his heroics in the Champions League heroics against Liverpool. The Wales international was brought onto the field when the scores were level at 1-1 but he changed the tide of the game with a man of the match brace which included a sensational overhead kick.
Speaking in a Q&A session in Cardiff, Bale relieved the moment saying: “I was frustrated, I’ve said before, not to start the game. But I knew I was capable of being involved in the game and I was. It was great to get the goal, pure emotion. It’s just kind of one of those things that you don’t think about, you just react to it.I’ve always wanted to score a bicycle kick. To do it on such an occasion was the place to do it.I kind of just went on holiday afterwards and tried to disconnect, so I haven’t watched it too many times. If you don’t try these things, they never come off.” Continue reading Gareth Bale admits frustration before Champions League heroics
Wales international Gareth Bale has refused to give up on his World Cup dream, despite missing out on the global tournament in Russia this summer. The 28-year-old suffered a calf problem during the latter stages of Wales’ qualifying campaign, and he had to watch helplessly watch at his country were ousted by the Republic of Ireland.
Despite the disappointment, the attacker remains keen on realising his World Cup dream, and motivated to guide Wales to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he said: “It was a massive disappointment for all of us not to reach the World Cup having experienced the Euros, which was incredible. But normally if we do well in one campaign we die away in the next. We were right there until the end, so we have to take the positives. Losing and missing out on the World Cup makes us even hungrier to qualify next time.”
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has insisted that Gareth Bale is content with the proceedings in the Spanish Capital despite being in-and-out of the starting line-up. The Wales international has endured another injury-hit campaign with the European champions, and he has managed just 28 appearances across all competitions, scoring 11 goals.
Recent reports from the Spanish media have suggested that the attacker could be leaning towards a return to the Premier League after being left out of the starting 11 against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, but Zidane has stressed that there is no concern of any sort with the former Tottenham man, he said: “Bale? No, no, (he is not unhappy). He is a player who is different in this sense. Everyone can have their own opinion, but I don’t think he is sad. I think he is happy to be here, happy to be part of this club. He has proved that he is a very important player in this squad.” Continue reading Zinedine Zidane Dismisses Claims That Gareth Bale Is ‘Unhappy’
