Teddy Sheringham Exclusive: No Spurs Return For Bale

Ex-Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham does not see Gareth Bale returning to Spurs this summer – and has suggested that the Wales captain would not be a regular starter in North London. Bale joined Tottenham in 2007 and stayed for six years, before leaving for Real Madrid in a €100million world-record deal. The Welshman also came back for a loan spell in 2020-21, making 34 appearances and scoring 16 goals across all competitions. However, Sheringham feels the forward would not get the same opportunities if he were to join on a free transfer, when his Los Blancos contract expires at the end of this campaign. And the former England international thinks the 32-year-old will prioritise regular playing time when choosing his next club.


No Return For Bale

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “I don’t see Bale returning to Tottenham. 

“I don’t know where Gareth Bale’s head is about playing football at the moment, he obviously likes playing for Wales, there’s problems at Real Madrid. 

“I’d just love to see him playing football again on a regular basis.

“He wouldn't play regularly at Spurs. When you look at their forward line and the players that are on the substitutes’ bench as well. 

“I think they’ve definitely got two world-class players and then three or four, maybe even five players that could fit into a lot of Premier League teams. So I don’t think Gareth, at this stage in his career, would command a regular starting place.”

Recruitment To Elevate Starting Line-Up

Sheringham feels the North Londoners should either be targeting young players on the cusp of becoming established, or spending big on proven stars that will elevate the quality of the starting line-up.

“Any players that are going to enhance the Tottenham squad are good signings for me,” he said. 

“They’ve obviously got good players at the football club, they need to go out and recruitment needs to be targeted towards young players that will be good in maybe six months time.

“Or go out and spend top dollar on players that are better than the ones at the club at the moment, but that’ll cost the club a lot of money. 

“Hopefully they’ll get into the Champions League for next season, so they’ll know what they need to spend on players.”
