Former Tottenham football manager tells Gareth Bale to stay at Spurs

19th April 2011 - Berko Tau

Former Tottenham Hotspur football manager Glenn Hoddle hopes that the club manage to keep hold of star winger Gareth Bale.

The 21-year-old Welshman has attracted admiring glances from clubs all around Europe, after some impressive displays for Spurs in the Champions League.

His form has been such that he was recently named the Footballer of the Year by the Professional Footballers' Association.

While former football manager Hoddle believes Bale has what it takes to succeed at a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid, he wants to see the player stay in the Premier League.

"If he was ever going to move, it should be in two or three years' time - mature a little bit more, find out what the game is all about," said Hoddle.

Wales legend Cliff Jones has also urged Bale to stay in London, saying that playing under football manager Harry Redknapp is the best place for him to develop.
