Spurs can take anyone - Bale

Published Add your comment

Tottenham star Gareth Bale is finally back in the squad following recovery from a back injury, and the Spurs winger is taking it one day at a time in preparation for the Champions League quarter final.

“We’ve had a great run in the Champions League and we want to keep it going. It’s a massive competition, the biggest stage in club football and everyone wants to be part of it to prove themselves against the best and try to become a better player,” Bale told the official Tottenham website.

“We won’t get carried away with ourselves and we’ll take it one step at a time.”


With the draw for the quarter finals to take place on Friday, 11am at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Tottenham fans are hoping for a favourable opponent, in which case they might just be favourites to make the semi.

“We’re happy to be where we are, we deserve to be where we are and whoever we get, we’ll give 100 per cent,” Bale said, admitting he wasn’t going to give too much thought to the draw until Friday.

Redknapp wasn’t so diplomatic in his assessment of possible opponents for the Champions League quarters, sighting Barcelona as the side he’s least like to play against.

"Barcelona made a side like Arsenal, who in our league pass teams to death, almost look out of their depth. I thought Barcelona's performance was one of the finest I have ever seen. They were simply amazing,” he told reporters over the weekend.

Bale has also revealed about how ecstatic he was to be able to play for Spurs again, after suffering a back injury in mid January.
