Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to comments made by Harry Redknapp about Gareth Bale and his place in the team.
The Welshman has had a bit of a tough time since his return to North London, only managing to play 15 times in all competitions this season, the majority of them on a backup basis, and it has led to some people questioning his worth to Tottenham this season.
And speaking during Sky Sports’ deadline day coverage (as per Football Daily), the former Spurs boss, who helped turn Bale into the world-class player he became, launched a staunch defence of the 31-year-old, who found it baffling that there are players who are being played ahead of him in this current side.
However, there was a portion of the Spurs fanbase that didn’t seem to agree with their former manager, as they put the blame on Bale for not being in a good position to bring the best out of himself:
“I championed Bale coming back here as much as anyone but you would have to blind to not see its not worked out. There is just nothing there under the bonnet. He can do 15 minutes here and there but he is basically shot. Sad to admit it but it’s true. Euros will be his Wales swansong”
