Man Utd legend Giggs tips Real Madrid's Bale to be 'best ever'

Gareth Bale can be 'the best ever' according to Wales great Ryan Giggs.

The Real Madrid star again contributed strongly to the Welsh side's positive beginning to Euro2016 qualifying when providing the assist for Hal Robson-Kanu's winning goal in Monday night's 2-1 triumph over Cyprus.

The result left Chris Coleman's Dragons sitting on top of Group B with seven points from three matches and Bale's early performances in the campaign have prompted Manchester United legend Giggs to suggest he could become the best player in world football.

"He is a world class player who could walk into any team and is a match-winner," Giggs told WalesOnline.

"He could be the best ever. He can be as good as he wants to be because he's such an amazing talent. He can go all the way.

"He's playing at a great club and he's doing it week in week out and he's doing it for Wales as well."

Of the 25-year old, who joined Real from Tottenham for £85.3million last summer, Giggs added: "He has to deliver at Real Madrid where the expectation is huge and the pressure is on and it's showing in his performances for Wales he can still deliver.

"It's been a massive learning curve for him over the last season but he's lived up to every expectation and more."
