Bale hints at Tottenham stay

Bale hints at Tottenham stay

Tottenham star Gareth Bale hinted at possible stay at White Hart Lane for at least one more season, despite his club failing to reach Champions’ Legue spot.

The Welsh wizard’s stunning match-winning goal in the dying stages of the game against Sunderland was not enough to secure Tottenham Champions League football, as Arsenal beat Newcastle at the final day.

That fuelled the speculation that ambitious Bale could be leaving the club in summer with a view to test himself on a Europe’s biggest stage. But these suggestions appear to be wide of the mark, with Bale hinting he would help his side to qualify for Champions League next season.

He said: “We fought hard this season, the team and the manager have been great. We have got the record points for the club in the Premier League. That would normally be enough to qualify for the Champions League, but it’s not meant to be again. It’s disappointing, but we will pick ourselves up again. We will just have to regroup this season and give it another go.

“To play the way we have also but to miss out on our objective (Champions League qualification) is very disappointing. It was great to get the win (against Sunderland) but the clouds just came over and made it a little bit duller, but it’s something we have to learn from, we are a young squad, and we will take it in to the future,” he added.
