The good thing about Gareth Bale’s mega transfer from Spurs to Real Madrid is that the north London side don’t miss his goals…
Gareth Bale made it 9 goals this season (as many as Tottenham have claimed in the Premier League) with a fine, perfect, hat-trick against Real Valladolid on Saturday night.
Without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale claimed his first three-goal haul in La Liga and showed just what a quality player he is to the Bernabeu crowd.
The early injury problems are long forgotten and the comparisons with Neymar are now looking a lot more favourable than they did.
