Wales boss Ryan Giggs has backed Gareth Bale to get past his torrid time at Real Madrid and get back to his best at Tottenham.

There’s been much optimism that Gareth Bale could rediscover his best form at Tottenham. Wales boss Ryan Giggs shares those thoughts too.

The Welshman temporarily ended a troubled time at Real Madrid after completing a season-long loan to former side Spurs.

Bale won a good amount of titles with Real Madrid, including four Champions Leagues, but he ultimately fell out of favor with Zinedine Zidane.

Now back at Tottenham where he established himself, Giggs is certain his compatriot can get back to his best.

“He will play more regularly than he did at Madrid,” said Giggs to Sky Sports.

“I think it’s a good move for Gareth, it’s good for Spurs and good for the Premier League in general, to have someone like that who we can watch every week.

“He’s at a club he knows well with a very good manager and I think he’s said himself it’s like going back home.”

Giggs also hopes more game-time for Bale will provide him more chances to star for Wales at Euro 2020 next year.

“It will be so much better if he is playing regularly. He will be sharper, will be able to play those two games in a short space of time,” he added.
