Gareth Bale is a Tottenham player once again.
Spurs confirmed the season-long loan signing of the Welshman on Saturday afternoon, returning to the club he left in 2013.
It’s nice to be back!” he said. “This is such a special Club to me. It’s where I made my name. What an amazing Club, amazing fans, and it’s just incredible to be back. Hopefully, now I can get some match fitness, help the team and win trophies.
“I always thought when I did leave that one day I would love to come back, and the opportunity has now arisen. I feel like it’s a good fit, it’s a good time for me, I’m hungry, I’m motivated, I want to do well and can’t wait to get started.”
Despite scoring more than 100 goals, winning two La Ligas and four Champions Leagues – scoring in two of the finals – Bale was far from a fan favourite at the Bernabeu. The Spanish media didn’t exactly like him either, while his relationship with Zinedine Zidane was rocky, to say the least.
But everything he’s given to the club since 2013, you’d at least think they’d pay tribute to the outgoing winger.
Errrrr, not quite.
That’s because their ‘Comunicado Oficial’ was pretty cold.
It read: “Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur FC have agreed the loan of the player Gareth Bale for the next season, until June 30, 2021.
Our club wishes good luck to a player who is part of one of the most successful stages of our history.”
