“He doesn’t need to go abroad, he is better off here”


Gareth Bale

Harry Redknapp has once again insisted that Gareth Bale is better off staying at Tottenham Hotspur.

Another fantastic display against Inter Milan from the Welshman has made Europe’s elite sit up and take notice of the left-sided player.

“He’s against a right-back who is rated as the best right-back in the world and what he’s done to him over the last two games is amazing. He’s got everything. He’s got great ability. It’s not just his pace, he can run all day. He’s got the ability to cross, his left-foot is great on the run, he can shoot, dribble, head it, he’s got everything.

“He’s also a great lad. You couldn’t meet a nicer, lower-maintenance boy than him. He just comes in and plays his football. I gave him a few days off because he had been playing so well. I said go abroad and he did, he went to Cardiff to stay with his mum! That’s the kind of boy he is.”

Redknapp revealed that even Inter director Luis Figo was in awe of Bale.

“He said to me, ‘Bale is just amazing, he killed us twice’. When Figo says that, it’s got to be good, because he was such a fantastic footballer,” Redknapp said. “As far as selling him, the people who own Tottenham are not poor people. It is not a selling club. It is a well-run club. He doesn’t need to go abroad, he is better off here.”
