AVB can’t see Welsh wizard leaving this summer.
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has been assured that his most prized asset, Gareth Bale, will still be at the club next season, according to Sky Sports.
The Portuguese boss recently suggested that the 23-year-old could be on his way out of White Heart Lane this summer is the club failed to reach the Champions League.
However, he has now backtracked on his previous comments claiming that he was misquoted and moved quickly to allay and fears that the fans may have.
“The information that I have from the club, which was mistakenly written about last week, is that the player is here to remain, independent of the objectives of Champions League qualification being achieved or not,” he said.
“I would be extremely surprised (if he left).”
“In football anything can happen. It’s impossible to predict, but this is the assurance I have had from the club.”
“We understand that the more awards the more recognition the player will have, the more media attention, but the club has to move forward by holding onto its best players.”
“With the recognition and the further experience that he has had from this year, next year for Tottenham he will be even more assertive.”
“He’s a player we have to hold onto for the remaining seasons to make sure that we reach our objectives and continue to progress as a club.”
This news comes after the player himself spoke of his desire to stay at Spurs following his double swoop at the PFA awards last weekend.
