Fabio Capello has described Tottenham’s Gareth Bale as the best player in the world.
The Welshman is a doubt to start in tonight’s Champions League clash against AC Milan.
The Italian said: “Gareth Bale is today the number one player in the world.
“He is the only one who can make a difference in the role he plays as he has pace, technique and strength. Those are three qualities it is hard to find in a player who is not a striker.
“Bale doesn’t set out from defence like a full-back. He drives forward and when gets nearer to goal he moves infield and shoots with amazing accuracy.
“Bale reminds me of Roberto Carlos, who was born a left-back and who matured physically and in terms of tactical awareness. Carlos was an explosive player and the only one who came even close to Bale.”
