Here are some thoughts from former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp on Gareth Bale, where he remarks that Bale could win the Ballon D’Or and says a Premiership team buying the 27 year old could be the difference between them winning and not winning the league
Real beat Osasuna 5-2 over the weekend and their next game is against Sporting CP.
Yes, he can win the Ballon d’Or. I think he is in the top five at the moment anyway. I think he is up there, I think he is a fantastic talent
If any of the top teams in the Premier League managed to buy him back, he would be the difference between winning the league and not. If he came back to England, he would be the best player in the league
If he went to Man City, I think Man City would win the league, if he had gone to Man Utd, I’d have fancied Man Utd to do it. If he went back to Tottenham, then Tottenham to win it. Chelsea, I’d say Chelsea. That is the difference he would make.
You saw him on the training ground, you knew he was special. He had everything really, he could dribble, he could shoot, he could run far, he could run short distance with speed
He could run long distance. He had everything. He could score goals, make goals. He was the full package. I always felt he could have been the best left back in the world. He was an amazing talent, we just pushed him forward so we could get more out of him.
He started off on the left wing, then we ended up giving him a free role and wherever he played he was just a great threat to the opposition with his pace with his ability to just pick the ball up and beat people and score goals. He’s just amazing
