Speaking of BBC Match of the Day Top 10 PodcastGary Lineker has discussed the reported Tottenham Hotspur target Gareth Bale.
The pundit was tasked with naming the 10 greatest players who never won the Premier League title and as you can imagine, two-time PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale made the cut.
Bale was a star at Spurs in the early 2010s and has recently been linked with a move back to Tottenham.
Lineker described the Welshman as an “incredible talent”.
what was said
Lineker spoke about Bale and his place on this list.
“Gareth Bale, he won La Liga so it’s important to emphasize that and he’s won four Champions Leagues. I don’t think not winning a Premier League does massive damage to his reputation. He was brilliant in Spain before things went a bit wrong but he’s an incredible talent,” Lineker said.
still has a lot to offer
Lineker says things have gone a bit wrong for Bale at Real Madrid but he still has so much to offer.
Just look at his performance for Wales against Austria last week. He scored two goals while grabbing one of the best free kicks you’re likely to ever see.
Bale returned to Spurs last season and while he didn’t reach the heights we’d seen of him during his early days at the club, he still scored 10 league goals and looked electrified at times.
When Bale returns to Spurs this summer, they’ll still get a fantastic player who can turn any game upside down.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that this isn’t the last time we see Bale in the Premier League.
