Bale is in no doubt that he made the right choice in joining Tottenham when the big-time beckoned in the summer of 2007 and he left Southampton.
Despite the injury setbacks that have made such a massive impact on his career at White Hart Lane, the Wales international has no regrets about choosing Spurs.
Bale said: “I’m happy with the decision I made. I’ve learned so much on and off the pitch. In training you are working with world-class players every day and, yes, I am enjoying it here now.”
