Lineker: Bale can be world class


Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker believes that the club have potential to become one of “the great Spurs sides”.

The former England striker said: “Spurs are doing brilliantly. They need to be a bit more resilient and stronger but they have the potential to become one of the great Spurs sides if they can make themselves a little harder to penetrate.

“It’s their first go in the Champions League and they have set the competition alight in their attitude and the way they’ve played.

“They have got a lot of qualities, they have a terrific squad and a big squad, a lot of good players and I think Harry is right that they are two or three short of challenging for honours.”

When asked about Gareth Bale, Lineker added: “Bale could be potentially a truly great player. He can do it all,”

“He can run all day and he’s quick, which is an unusual combination, he’s powerful, his delivery is very precise, he takes all the dead balls, got a wonderful left foot, he’s competitive, works hard, seems to have a good head on his shoulders.

“If he’s fortunate to avoid injury he could be one of the world’s best.”
