Spurs ace Bale: Dad still tells me off

Tottenham ace Gareth Bale admits his Dad keeps him grounded.

Bale says his father, Frank, is his harshest critic.

Bale told Esquire: "He always told me off if I did something wrong. Even now he still does it. But he makes me get better and I kind of want to keep proving him wrong to keep him quiet. He's always got something to say."
