Tottenham winger Bale frustrated by injury woes in second-half of season

Tottenham star Gareth Bale admits an injury-plagued second-half of the campaign was frustrating.

For many, Bale was the hottest player on the planet leading up to Christmas.

He told the Spurs website: "Coming into the season I felt confident playing all the time and I felt comfortable playing on the wide left. Then once the season started it felt like I was improving with every game.

"It was a good first half to the season but a frustrating second half for myself, picking up a little back injury, then a hamstring, then an ankle injury that finished my season. But aside from the injuries it was a good season all round and one I'm looking to build on.

"Hopefully I can get a good recovery in the off-season and be ready for pre-season and the new season.

"There has been a lot of ups rather than downs and that's the main thing. We had a great run in the Champions League, a great run in the league and some good performances."
