Spurs star Bale: I'll play anywhere - except left-back!

Tottenham ace Gareth Bale admits he doesn't see a future for himself at left-back.

Bale is happy to join the debate about what his best position on the pitch is.

He said: "Anywhere but left-back! I feel very comfortable wherever I play at the moment."

His evolution has led to him changing the number on his back from three to 11.

He explained to The Sun: "It's always been my favourite shirt number.

"Even 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!

"Then every time it became available it was snapped up again.

"So when Rafael van der Vaart left in the summer I asked if I could have it and they said yes."
