‘Arms in’ golfer-turned-SON former teammate on 74 billion junior: “Tottenham over Arsenal!”

Former Tottenham striker Gareth Bale (34-retired), who is enjoying a second life as a golfer, has expressed his faith in the young Welsh striker who joined Spurs.

Bale was playing in the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am at Wentworth Club in Surrey, England, on Sept. 13 (ET). Speaking to Sky Sports at the event, Bale said of Brennan Johnson, 22, whom Tottenham signed from Nottingham Forest for £45 million on transfer deadline day last summer, “He’s doing well. He will get better and better as he plays at the top level.”

Bale, who played alongside Johnson at the end of his career, added: “The sky is the limit for him. He’s developing well. That’s good for Tottenham and good for the Welsh national team.” Earlier, Wales captain Aaron Ramsey (Cardiff), an Arsenal alumnus, had bemoaned Johnson’s move to Spurs during the September A-match call-up, but Bale laughed and retorted, “(Spurs) are better than Arsenal.”

Bale developed into one of the world’s best flankers at Tottenham from 2007 to 2013. After pulling on a Real Madrid shirt in 2013 for a then world-record €100 million, Bale returned to Spurs on loan for the 2020-2021 season and formed a great partnership with Son Heung-min. He played 237 games for Tottenham, scoring 71 goals. He retired from LA FC in 2023.

“It’s great to see Tottenham get their style back,” Bale said. “It’s something they definitely needed, given how Enzi Postecoglou led the team at Celtic,” he added, praising the Spurs’ change in form early in the season, which has seen them go four games unbeaten in the league.카지노사이트

“It’s a great start. Hopefully there’s more to come, and I think they can get even better.”
