Ex-Spurs star Van der Vaart questions if Bale can handle Real Madrid locker room politics

Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart is unsure how former Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale will handle the Real Madrid locker room.

Van der Vaart is also a former Real player and knows all about the club's culture.

"I know Bale as a very nice and sweet guy so I think he would fit best in England.

"A club like Real Madrid is different and there is a lot of pressure over there. But maybe he can surprise everybody at Real."
