Tottenham ace Bale calls for patience with AVB

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has called for patience regarding new manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The former Chelsea manager has overseen a slow start to the Premier League season for Spurs with yesterday's 3-1 win at Reading their first triumph of the campaign.

But Welshman Bale, who netted the second goal in the away win, feels that Villas-Boas is just getting things together at White Hart Lane after taking over from Harry Redknapp in the summer.

"I haven't heard anything about (Villas-Boas') future," Bale said. "He's here to build a team and it's a new way of playing for us, compared to last season.

"It does take time. Everybody should understand that. There has been an improvement in every game and you saw that at Reading.

"Everybody just has to be patient. Things will come and it'll start to click like it did yesterday and, hopefully, we can push on from there.

"Everyone feels fresh again and we've got the new signings now, which is great.

"We've got a stronger squad now than we did at the start of the season. Our plan is to win every game and we'll be trying to do that."
