Kane’s headache: Keeping Gareth Bale is a step back for Tottenham not progress

Who wouldn’t want to see a club legend back at the club? Especially one that wooed the football world with his explosive pace, power, fantastic dribbling skills and incredible goals.

From 2009-2013, Bale was arguably the best Premier League player and his impressive displays caught the attention of Europe’s finest clubs including Real Madrid who paid over $90m for the attacker.

Los Blancos knew playing Bale in the right wing and Cristiano Ronaldo in the left will make them unstoppable once they get the right manager in.

And boy! where they right.

Bale played a crucial role in Real Madrid winning 13 trophies including 4 Champions League trophies of which three were won consecutively.

But, since 2019 to 2021, Bale has been the shadow of himself. He has struggled for form, fitness and trust from his Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

That unfortunate circumstance forced Real Madrid to send him on loan to Spurs where he has managed to rekindle some of his lost spark.

At Spurs, he is doing well enough to score goals or provide the much needed assists but you get feelings that he is just enjoying his football and not really playing for trophies.

Trophies are no longer Bale’s motivation, he has 4 Champions League trophies of which he scored in all of them. His name is already written in football’s folklore unlike the rest of his Spurs teammates.

Harry Kane on the other hand is the complete opposite of Bale in terms of achievement. Bale has won it all, Kane has nothing but individual awards.

If Kane choose to remain in the same team with Bale, he will not win a single trophy but in the mix of mediocrity and excellence.

To put it bluntly, Bale, Heugn Son Min and Kane will always guarantee Spurs Europa league football and nothing else.
