Gareth Bale: Admires Europe's big three

Gareth Bale: Admires Europe's big three

The Welsh winger has been in impressive form scoring 10 goals in his last eight games for the White Hart Lane club and is one of the favourites to land the Player of the Year award.

His stellar performances for the North Londoners at home and abroad have caught the attention of Europe's biggest clubs.

And although the likes of big spenders Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have indicated an interest in him, Bale says those clubs are not in the same league as the big three.

"Yes, PSG is a great team," he told French TV show Telefoot. "They brought great players last summer, even in January. This is a club to follow in the future, a bit like Manchester City. (But) they are still not at the level of great clubs. Not like Bayern, Real or Barcelona.

"I have grown up as a person and I hope to keep improving year after year.

"(Ryan) Giggs is the hero of my childhood. I watched him play as a kid. But today, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi are the players to watch."

Meanwhile, former Spurs director Damien Comolli believes the 23-year-old will remain at the club for the time being.

"I think that if PSG is aware that the player is on the market, I won't be surprised that they do everything in their power to sign him," he told Telefoot.

"But today, there is a 90 per cent chance that he will stay at Spurs. I know the president (chairman) of Spurs and how he works. Only three or four clubs can afford (Bale) right now."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
