Welsh ace drops hint over future ambitions.
Real Madrid ace Gareth Bale has given Spurs fans some good news on Friday morning by claiming that he may one day return to the club in an exclusive interview with BT Sport.
The Wales international left the north London club to move to the Spanish capital last summer in a world record £85m deal, but spoke of his ongoing affection for his former club and hopes that they understand exactly why he left.
“The fans have been unbelievable with me,” Bale said. “They’ve supported me through the bad times and believed in me and I’ll never forget the great European nights at White Hart Lane. They were amazing.
“Tottenham will always have a place in my heart. I hope the fans still love me even though I’ve moved on. I hope they understand that obviously Real Madrid is a massive, massive club and that they respect my decision.
“From the moment Real Madrid put the offer in it was obviously difficult. [Tottenham] was somewhere I felt so comfortable and so happy – it was difficult to leave but when Real Madrid come in it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
And before signing off he gave the Spurs faithful something to be hopeful for – his eventual return.
“I love all the Tottenham fans and hopefully one day, you never know, I could be back.”
