With the ‘How it started, how it’s going’ meme trending on social media for the past couple of weeks, Tottenham Hotspur decided to jump on the bandwagon.
For those who are unaware, the meme helps people take a trip down memory lane to revisit their humble beginnings compared to where they are now.
Understandably, Tottenham decided to feature returning superstar Gareth Bale in the post, with the 30-year-old’s career at Spurs serving as a perfect personification of the meme.
Bale arrived at Spurs back in 2007 as a teenager, who primarily featured as a left-back, and it took him more than a year to be involved in his first Premier League win in a Tottenham shirt.
Few would have expected what came next as the Welshman went from strength to strength, becoming one of the most potent attackers in the Premier League and earning a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.
After seven years in the Spanish capital where he won an astonishing number of titles, Bale has now returned to his old stomping ground as one of the biggest names in world football.

However, Southampton took issue with the meme and pointed out to Tottenham that the youngster had come through the St Mary’s set up before Spurs bought him.
