Not surprisingly our manager Harry Redknapp has tipped Gareth Bale to become one of the greatest players in the world. However, Harry seems to think that the player’s ultimate future lies in the left back position and not on the left wing where he has caused so much trouble since the end of last season.
Speaking in his column in The Sun, Redknapp said: “He will develop his game in the future and eventually I believe he will revert to being a left-back.
“As he gets more and more well known and his game gets understood by opponents, he will find space harder to come by in order to run at teams.
“But, with experience, I reckon he will drop back into the left-back postion, which means he will be able to pick up the ball deeper in his own half and have that time and space denied more forward players.”
Harry also tipped Bale to walk away with a host of awards at the end of the season. For most Spurs fans, we will be happy just to see him back in a lilywhite shirt very soon.
