Berbatov: Spurs ready to rival Liverpool attack if Bale joins

Dimitar Berbatov thinks Spurs will have an attack to rival Liverpool’s if Gareth Bale signs for the club this summer.

Tottenham have been in discussions to sign the 31-year-old from Real Madrid seven years after he left for a then-world record fee and all three parties are keen for the move to happen, with the  reporting the deal is already done.

It would mean that Jose Mourinho would finally get to work with a player he tried to sign twice previously, first when he was in charge at the Bernabeu and then when at Manchester United.



And Berbatov was pleased to read reports that Bale is set to take a “step back in the right direction” to join the north London club.

“It’s great news for everyone involved,” Berbatov told .

“Gareth loves Spurs, it’s where he first showed the world what he can do.

“Quality never disappears. At 31, he still has the ability to play a crucial role at Spurs … This is a step back in the right direction for an amazing player.”

Berbatov added: “It’s hard to say that this alone will make Spurs title challengers, but it is a sign to the world that they can do serious business. The players in the squad will be encouraged, and so will potential signings.

“Bale, [Harry] Kane, [Heung-min] Son, Dele Alli. Managers would kill for this frontline … On paper, they now have the strongest front-line in the league along with Liverpool.

“Bale is probably already texting Harry Kane and other Spurs players, chatting and looking forward to linking up.”

‘Bunch of spoiled kids’ – Pundit gives verdict on ten Spurs players

Spurs looked “like a bunch of spoiled kids” in their opening day defeat to Everton on Sunday, according to former midfielder Jamie O’Hara.

and it was a limp display by Jose Mourinho’s men, who were well off the pace.

Mourinho said after the match that he “did not like his team” and they lacked intensity, but .



And O’Hara reckons “anyone could play against Spurs” at the moment with a number of “average” players in their squad.

“They look like a bunch of spoiled kids! Get some leaders and characters in the camp and pull your fingers out – this is Spurs Football Club you are playing for,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.

“You go through that team: Davies, average; Alderweireld, average; Dier, below average; Doherty, just signed, decent; Hojbjerg, average; Winks, decent; Alli, average; Son, brilliant; Kane, brilliant; Lucas Moura, touch and go.

“We need centre-backs with pace. We’ve just signed Matt Doherty from Wolves who has been playing wing-back for years; he’s not a right-back, he’s a wing-back.

“So if you are going to play him that high up the pitch you need two centre-halves who are very, very quick and very, very good one-on-one defenders, because they are going to get left exposed.

“You need to squeeze up the pitch and be brave and press high up. If they get done in behind or done over the top, that’s on me – I’m the gaffer.

“But I guarantee over the course of a season you will condense a pitch enough to win the ball back more in high areas and be closer together so you’ll be able to control football matches.

“They are so stretched, it’s unbelievable. I mean, anyone could play against Spurs!”
