AVB confident Bale will face Monaco


Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas expects Gareth Bale to be back in training on Wednesday and the winger could face Monaco.

The Welsh star missed both matches of Tottenham’s Asia Trophy tournament against Sunderland and South China due to a buttock injury. However the press continue to fuel speculation that Bale is still likely to join Real Madrid this summer, which is totally unfounded.

AVB has kept his patience with the media despite daily interrogation over Bale’s future at Spurs. He has stated on a number of times that Bale is not for sale, and yet the rumours persist.

We face Monaco on Saturday at the Stade Louis II, kick-off is at 5:30pm UK time.

“He is going to be fit to join the team for training on Wednesday,” AVB told the press after our win against South China.

“There is a big possibility he could be fit for Monaco.

“He hasn’t done any training with the team yet but in all of the pre-season friendlies we had before he was involved.

“We are confident he will be able to join us.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We need Bale to come out and state that he is staying at spurs, his silence is either ominous or is designed to attract a nice fat contract, I really hope he stays as we need to build the team with him in it!

  2. If he were to make a statement, just how often would he have to make another and another? Every time Marca posted another set of lies? Wouldn't some say he asaid was staying a week ago but hasn't said anything since? It's idiots that repeat the rubbish without research that gives the story oxygen. He'll stay for another season so perhaps on 1st September the faint hearts can stop doing Corpral Pike impressions.
