West Ham United midfielder Gary O'Neil says Tottenham star Gareth Bale has the lot.

Bale struck twice in Monday's win for Tottenham at the Boleyn Ground.

“I think Gareth Bale is up there with how Cristiano Ronaldo was when he was playing in England.

“He was either scoring or assisting in every game and Gareth has been doing something similar for the last eight games.

“He’s got a long throw, he takes corners, he scores from 30 yards, he scores with headers and he’s quick and strong — there’s not much that he can’t do!

“I don’t see why he couldn’t play for a club like Real Madrid. I don’t want to see Spurs lose him but he could play for anyone.”
