Bale, the untouchable of Redknapp

After showing off to Norwich, with two goals, the left-back Gareth Bale returns to the international showcase.

Gareth Bale is not for sale. The Welsh full-back Tottenham heritage is not going to move to White Hart Lane. Harry Redknapp, the coach of the Spurs has been commissioned to remind the European football in the north of London there are no plans to divest most decisive player of the team.

The last exhibition of Bale, author of two goals from Tottenham's victory in Norwich, has relocated to escape Welsh international in just a few days when it will open the winter market. But Redknapp has been commissioned to dissuade potential buyers. "No, of course Bale is not for sale," he said after the game against the 'canaries'. "And anyway, he added, the Barcelona-only club that has on its agenda-, Real Madrid or Manchester City, no money to pay the clause and the tab."

At 22, Bale sport has reached maturity. Started in rugby, the Welsh soon realized that his site was in football. Of Southampton, his first club, made the leap to Tottenham in the summer of 2007. The White Hart Lane club paid seven million euros for his transfer. Today it is rated at 40. "I do not know if this is the best player in British football, I can say is that it is an incredible player, sometimes unstoppable," said his coach. Bale, however, was elected last April best player in the Premiership.

The player believes that one of the reasons why stands out above the rest is his versatility. "I've always played more on the wings, but now I do more for the environment," said Bale. However, he acknowledges that this freedom of movement means that sometimes have to overcome "the marking of two or three players." Thanks to the contribution not only but also Bale Modric, Van der Vaart or Adebayor, Tottenham is third, seven points of the two teams in Manchester. "They are the favorites," insisted Redknapp. (via SPORT)
