Gareth Bale: The Tottenham star won double Player of the Year awards this season

Double Player of the Year Bale was in stunning form this season but Spurs still narrowly missed out on the top four of the Premier League on the final day of the campaign.

A fifth-placed finish has led to speculation of the Welshman's exit amid long-term reports of interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

But Sigurdsson is desperate for Bale to stay and help Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham in a renewed challenge next season.

Sigurdsson said in The Sun: "It's important to keep good players and he is a fantastic player.

"For us to push forward it would be fantastic if he stays. If he goes, the club will get a lot of money for him.

"Hopefully, he would be replaced by a few players because I don't think there will be one player who can replace him.

"That's how good he was this season. He was very important for us. He's been here for a long time. He's very happy and obviously enjoying his football so, hopefully, he will stay."

Meanwhile, Sigurdsson thought a lack of consistency from Tottenham's squad and personally since his move to White Hart Lane was to blame for missing out on the top four.

He said: "There were two halves to my season. I didn't really enjoy the first half but in the second half I settled in a lot more.

"It could have been a great season if we'd have qualified for the Champions League but that's the way it is."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
