Real Madrid ambassador Zinedine Zidane believes Gareth Bale is among the top three players in the world and “more than good enough” for the Spanish giants.
The French legend has once again spoken for his admiration for the Spurs winger, which reading between the lines could possibly be a tactic to unsettle Bale at the club. Zidane had previously praised Bale as recently as last month, which you can see here.
It is going to be an anxious summer for all connected with Tottenham unless Daniel Levy and co can tie Bale down to a new deal. We all know his current deal runs until 2016, but after the season he has had he deserves fresh terms. Maybe Zidane is just jealous since Gerry Francis never signed him for being too ‘wooden’.
Zidane told reporters: “I’ve been watching Tottenham because Gareth Bale has been playing there.
“Aside from Ronaldo and Messi, he is the player who has impressed me the most in the world. He is outstanding.
“What has particularly impressed me is that he is consistent. It’s not just been in one or two matches.
“He is consistently scoring spectacular goals and very important goals. He is very quick, skilful and exciting.
“Of course all the talented players like that can come to Real Madrid. Is he good enough for Real Madrid? Of course. He is more than good enough to play for Real Madrid.”
