Kevin Bond: More to come from Bale

Tottenham Hotspur’s assistant-manager, Kevin Bond, says the in-form Gareth Bale can get even better.

Bond said: “He’s on top of his form, you can see he is full of confidence at the moment.

“He is improving, he has done terrific and I think there is still more to come from him and he wants to improve as well.

“We were with him when he was at Southampton and we always thought he was a fantastic prospect.

“Then he had a difficult period when he first came here. He found it difficult to get in the side. He tried to get in at left-back but couldn’t get a game there and now he seems to have evolved.

“Now he has a little bit more freedom.

“He has added to his game. He has a bit of variation, he comes inside a bit. It helps him and makes it difficult for opponents to pin him down.

“He has always been a good player he has kicked on in the last year or so.”
