Ex-Spurs boss Redknapp: Bale makes Tottenham attack best in country

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is looking forward to seeing Gareth Bale in action today against West Ham.

He wrote for The Sun: "All being well, Gareth Bale will today play his first game in a season-long loan back in N17.

"And we should all be rubbing our hands at the prospect . . . I know I certainly am.

"What a forward line Jose Mourinho has got now — Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Bale.

"In my book that stands comparison alongside Liverpool's . . .  and any around in fact.

"Imagine if you're a defender and you see those three names on the teamsheet. It's mouth- watering for most but knee- trembling for anyone trying to stop them.

"I've heard people saying that the Bale we see now won't be a patch on the one who left Spurs for Real Madrid seven years ago — but I'm not having that.

"Gareth is a naturally fit lad and looks after himself. And even if he has lost half a yard of pace, possibly even a yard, so what?"
