Spurs wing star Bale: I am better at fullback

Gareth Bale admits he's enjoyed his attacking role with Tottenham in recent months.

The Wales international has been outstanding on the wing for Spurs.

Bale told hotspur magazine: "I still feel I'm most comfortable at full-back but in recent matches I've been moved further forward.

"It's another new challenge and, if the manager feels we are a better proposition as a result of it then I am happy with that.

"Wherever I am on the pitch, I love to come on to the ball and see everything in front of me. You often have less than a second to make your move; it's a thrilling part of football.

"When you're winning, football can't really get much better to be honest. I'm just enjoying playing."
