Something happened at half time in Milan a few weeks ago. Down 4 zip to the Champions League holders, Gareth Bale decided to become one of the most feared left sided attacking players in the world. He single handedly scored 3 to make the final score respectable.
And If you missed the Tottenham V Inter Milan return leg today you missed him continue his reign of terror in one of the more dominant one v one performances of the year. Against Maicon no less!
Cheers of “Taxi for Maicon” rang out as Bale added to his 3 goal performance in Milan with 2 assists. Maicon ending the game with one completed tackle and Bale set a 2010 Champions League high with 9 “dribbles”.
“Tonight he’s up against Maicon, one of the best defenders in the world, and he’s killed him.”
-Rafael Van Der Vaart
“Gareth Bale really is the milk … the absolute consecrated bread”
- Sid Lowe, Guardian Newspaper
“I gave Bale a few days off last week. I said go abroad. He did, he went to Cardiff, stayed with his mum”
- Harry Redknapp
“Gareth bale……take a bow”
- Jack Wilshere
