Bale is happy to join the debate about what his best position on the pitch is.
He said: âAnywhere but left-back! I feel very comfortable wherever I play at the moment.â
His evolution has led to him changing the number on his back from three to 11.
He explained to The Sun: âItâs always been my favourite shirt number.
âEven when I played left-back as a schoolboy I always wore No 11. I wanted No 11 when I first joined Spurs but Mido had it!
âThen every time it became available it was snapped up again.
âSo when Rafael van der Vaart left in the summer I asked if I could have it and they said yes.â
