Gareth Bale has given the biggest hint yet that he will remain at Tottenham next season.
So soon after suffering the disappointment that his team will not compete in next season’s Champions League, despite another wonder goal to earn his side three points, Bale outlines the solidarity and commitment of the Spurs players to finish one place better in the 2013/14 season.
"It's disappointing, but we will pick ourselves up again. We will just have to regroup this season and give it another go", said Bale.
"We have got the record points for the club in the Premier League. That would normally be enough to qualify for the Champions League, but it's not meant to be again.
"To play the way we have also but to miss out on our objective is very disappointing.
"It was great to get the win but the clouds just came over and made it a little bit duller, but it's something we have to learn from, we are a young squad, and we will take it in to the future."
Clearly Bale sees himself as part of that young squad, and sees an opportunity for the club to grow and improve, whilst playing a significant part in it’s future.
The Welshman has had a fantastic season at White Hart Lane, winning numerous awards including PFA, Football Writers, and Tottenham Player of the Year, on the way to scoring 21 times in 33 games in the Premier League, the most for the club since Jurgen Klinsmann in 1995.
