Gareth Bale’s former manager Harry Redknapp has told Spanish newspaper AS that the Welsh star needs to be strong and believe that he can turn his situation around.
Redknapp, under whom Bale first burst onto the world stage, had this to say about the player he managed for close to four years
He has never received this amount of attention and maybe that’s affected him a little.
But he’s got to get over it, be strong and believe that he can turn his situation around.
He’s got to dive in head first. It’s no good for him to be going over there wondering whether it would be better if he came back home.
He’s at one of the greatest clubs in the world, if not the greatest. This is a man’s world and he’s got to sort himself out.
