I can’t believe that it has been 7 years since Bale left Spurs for Real Madrid… a move I didn’t want him to make in the first place. Under Zidane’s management, Bale was mistreated in a disgraceful way – just as Lionel Messi under Bartomeu, but that’s another story – and it was disheartening to see.
But I’m happy to see Bale back at Spurs where I know (I hope) he’ll get the respect he deserves.
Welcome back, welcome home, Bale. Here, is where you belong, even if it’s just for a season-long loan.
