But the Frenchman says Bale needs the right stage to prove his best.
â€œAlready I rank him as one the best players in the world. He makes the difference all the time," Ginola told the Daily Star. â€œHe has got the key to unlock any situation.
â€œIt is very rare in a player of his age to be able to do such things. He is amazing. He can do anything with the ball and he is not even started yet.
â€œIt is the beginning of a long process that can hopefully take him to the top of the world.
â€œIt is too early for that yet, though. He doesnâ€™t play for Barcelona. He doesnâ€™t play for the teams that fight for the Champions League trophy.
â€œHeâ€™s still in the process of becoming that. You never saw the greatest player playing in an average team."
