Tottenham boss Redknapp: Bale will be best in world

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Gareth Bale could become the best left-back in the world.

Wales star Bale has thrived on the wing at White Hart Lane this season but Redknapp sees him eventually dropping back and becoming the best left-back in the world.

Comparing the 21-year-old to former Leeds and England star Terry Cooper, who made the same move, Redknapp said: "I think in years to come, he'll be the best left-back anywhere.

"But he's also a great left-sided player and it suits me to play him wide left most of the time because (Benoit Assou-) Ekotto is also a top, top-class left-back."
