Dimitar Berbatov stated that new signing Gareth Bale will make a big difference for Tottenham’s final third.

Dimitar Berbatov mentioned that Gareth Bale joining forces with Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min is a danger for the opponents. In addition, he said that the “speedster” will bring a winning mentality to Tottenham.

Subsequently, Bale moved to Spurs on September 18 after spending seven years at Santiago Bernabeu.

Comeback for Bale.

The Welshman was one of the most venomous wingers during his first time in London between 2007 and 2013. Furthermore, Madrid purchased Bale for a world record fee of £85 million.

Bale scored a fabulous 105 goals for the Spanish club in 251 appearances. Additionally, he experienced the European glory with four Champions League trophies and two La Liga titles.

However, the 31-year-old did not manage to make it to Zinedine Zidane’s list in the season 2019-20. He also faced plenty of criticism from all around.

Bale did not feel shy to express his feelings during an exclusive interview last month.

Though, Tottenham and Jose Mourinho came to rescue him. The winger will potentially feature for the club at home turf against West Ham after the international break. 

Deadly trio!

Spurs look forward to restarting after their massive victory against Manchester United on Sunday. Consequently, Kane and Son both displayed match-winning performance yet again.

Evidently, both have racked 14 goals among each other in all the competitions. Berbatov believes that once Bale joins forces with the dynamic duo, they will create a deadly trio.

“I’ve been so impressed with Spurs of late, and we can’t take anything away from them. I think even if United kept 11 men, Spurs would still have won easily,” the former Tottenham forward told Betfair.

“The partnership between Kane and Son is only getting stronger, and the addition of Bale soon is frightening to think about. I was also impressed with Ndombele and Sissoko in the middle of the pitch, and Hojbjerg from Southampton was also excellent.

“They were great – aggressive, read the game well, bullied United really. I want to see Ndombele get more time now, and he is proving that he deserves it.

“Overall for Spurs, it was a perfect performance. It’s interesting that the run of form has come as they signed Bale, even though he hasn’t played a minute! Hopefully, he isn’t training properly heavy sessions, but interactions around the club can have an impact on the squad, and bringing his winning mentality to these guys.

“If he can transfer that on to the pitch, that will honestly be just terrifying for all other clubs. We all saw the video of Bale with the win over Chelsea, and you can see how much he still cares and how passionate he is. 

“At Madrid, for all he was training, he wasn’t really part of the team, and he felt left out. He would not have felt part of the team, as he wasn’t allowed to contribute anything.

“The opposite is when you are part of the team – even if an injury is keeping you out, you still feel part of everything and you will want your team to win.”
