Tottenham star Gareth Bale admits he pines for the Champions League.

Bale will be playing in the Europa League next season if he stays at White Hart Lane.

He told The Sun: "When you play in the Premier League against a lower-end team, they set up to defend all the time.

"They set up to block you off.

"But when you play in the Champions League, all the teams are used to winning every week so it's more of an open attacking game, it's end-to-end."
