Some Spurs fans on social media have been left extremely disappointed after Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed in his first press conference as the new Tottenham head coach that Gareth Bale will not be returning to the club.

Bale struggled to get regular game time for large parts of last season but still ended the campaign with 16 goals in all competitions.

The 32-year-old did not have the impact he would have hope for at the European Championships with Wales, who were knocked out in the round of 16 stage by Denmark.

It was reported before Nuno’s appointment that Daniel Levy will give the next Spurs head coach the option to re-sign the forward on loan for another season.

However, some sources from Spain have claimed recently that the Welshman is likely to see out the final year of his contract at Real Madrid.

Nuno has now made it clear that Bale will not be returning to North London, with the Portuguese coach simply stating: “He will not be part of our squad” when asked about the Real Madrid star.

While some Spurs fans were happy to move on from Bale and focus on other targets, several were left heartbroken that they will not see him in a Tottenham shirt again.

From the way Espirito Santo answered the question, I suspect it was him that turned down the chance to re-sign Bale. That is not surprising considering that the Welshman might not have been able to cope physically with the demands of the 47-year-old’s style of play.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Let’s face it. Bale used Spurs twice over his career. The 2nd time being the last stint there. He admitted he was using it to get fit for the Euros.

    He scored some good goals in his 2nd stint but didn’t really do much against the big teams.

    As other have mentioned, let him go back to Spain and play golf. We can use his salary money to better use than paying him!
