Rayo Vallecano winger Falque: Bale wrecked my Tottenham chance

Rayo Vallecano midfielder Iago Falque blames Real Madrid star Gareth Bale for failing to make it at Tottenham.

Falque remains tied to Spurs, but is on a season-long loan at Rayo.

"My path was blocked by Bale; I play in a similar position to him and it was tough to get any game time with such a great player standing in my way. Competing for a place with him, Modric, Lamela and so on was no mean feat," he told Marca.
