Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs says Tottenham flyer Gareth Bale can become the best in the world.

While there can be no good wishes expressed tomorrow when United visit Spurs in an eagerly-anticipated Barclays Premier League duel, overall Giggs has high hopes for the 23-year-old.

"Gareth is brilliant," said Giggs. "He has so much to his game and over the last season or so he has improved a lot.

"He is not just a left winger. He can play in various positions. I have seen him play up front for Wales. I have seen him play off the front and on the right.

"He is such an exciting player, but more than that, he has a good attitude as well.

"He can go far in the game. And whilst I hope he has an off-day this weekend, as a fellow Welshman I hope it is to the very top."
