Tottenham may have fallen short against Manchester City tonight, but for a brief moment, Gareth Bale looked back in his prime.
Bale signed for Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. Some considered him the perfect player to congratulate Heung-min Son and Harry Kane, but that has not been the case.
The Welshman looks beyond the best. Whether it’s a series of injuries that have chained him, or simply a loss of motivation, he often seems like a shadow of the player he was when he last played in the Premier League.
Today, during Tottenham’s 3-0 loss to Man City, Bale came to life, if only for a brief second.
Bale worked his way in and out of the City defense, which has been nearly impenetrable in recent weeks, before shooting at goal. His effort was saved by Ederson, but they are encouraging signs for the Spurs faithful.
