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.”
