Gareth Bale Will ‘Probably’ Play Against West Ham

Gareth Bale West Ham

The return of Gareth Bale to Tottenham has been met with huge anticipation and optimism. Despite, the Welshman joining the club during his recovery from a knee injury, his arrival has states intent, and will certainly bolster Tottenham’s attacking options.

However, before the international break, Bale was nearing a return. It now seems that Spurs fans may see the 31-year-old back in action as soon as this weekend, as per reports from James Olley of ESPN.

Gareth Bale ‘Likely’ to Feature Against West Ham

The Moment Spurs Fans and Gareth Bale Have Been Waiting For

When Gareth Bale departed for Madrid in 2013, he was widely regarded as one of the world’s most exciting talents. In fact, it was the 2012/13 campaign where the 31-year-old particularly flourished, netting 21 goals in 33 games. His wand of a left foot became an absolute nightmare for defences and a move to the Spanish capital was well-earned.

The Welshman’s form in the Premier League was then carried over to La Liga, but he was soon hit with a series of injuries. These injuries then became far too frequent for the impatient Real Madrid fans, and he soon fell victim of the fans turning against him.

It was especially in the last few years, where limited game-time and Bale’s ‘bite-backs’ turned his relationship completely sour.

It is no doubt that Bale still has the ability to perform at the highest level. Re-joining Spurs has given the 31-year-old a platform to showcase what he still has to offer, in a team who will cherish having his presence.

Bale’s a Transformed Player Says Reguilon

Also during Mourinho’s press conference, he mentioned that Sergio Reguilon has noticed that Bale is a ‘different player’ to the one he saw at Madrid. Being at the club that brought him so many happy memories seven years ago, has certainly made settling in easier.

Looking Ahead to This Weekend

The Lilywhites host West Ham on Sunday, and the potential inclusion of Bale will dominate the pre-match chatter. Spurs will be looking to continue their recent run that has seen them pick up seven points from their last three.

However, their visitors will not just roll over. Two convincing wins from their last two against Wolves and Leicester City has brought a bit of positivity around the club.

The game promises to be a belter, with both clubs high in confidence. The pair are also working in hard in securing their respective deals before the domestic transfer window shuts.
