Crystal Palace winger Townsend: Bale wishes he was back with Spurs

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend believes Gareth Bale is missing Tottenham.

Real Madrid outcast Bale wishes he was at former club Tottenham, says ex-team-mate Townsend.

Townsend told talkSPORT: "I think if anything the Bale situation, he'd want to go back to Spurs. The memories of Spurs. His happiness.

"He was the main man. He was loved. He was at the top of his game. So, if anything I think it would work the other way.

"He would be like: 'I wish I was at Spurs now and had the freedom to do whatever I want. To express myself and not worry about where I am now where I get scrutinised for playing golf'."
