‘Bale joining Kane & Son is a frightening prospect’ – Exciting message sent to Tottenham fans
Dimitar Berbatov says Gareth Bale joining Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in the Tottenham attack is a “frightening” prospect.
After months of speculation, Tottenham pulled off one of the deals of the summer when they agreed to bring Bale back to London, as he sought a move away from Real Madrid to reignite his career.
Kane and Son have already racked up 14 goals between them in all competitions this term, with Berbatov of the opinion that Bale is capable of completing a deadly triumvirate once he is ready to feature.
“I’ve been so impressed with Spurs of late, and we can’t take anything away from them. I think even if United kept 11 men, Spurs would still have won easily,” the former Tottenham forward told Betfair .
“The partnership between Kane and Son is only getting stronger, and the addition of Bale soon is frightening to think about. I was also impressed with Ndombele and Sissoko in the middle of the pitch, and Hojbjerg from Southampton was also excellent.
“They were great – aggressive, read the game well, bullied United really. I want to see Ndombele get more time now, and he is proving that he deserves it.
“Overall for Spurs, it was a perfect performance. It’s interesting that the run of form has come as they signed Bale, even though he hasn’t played a minute! Hopefully, he isn’t training properly heavy sessions, but interactions around the club can have an impact on the squad, and bringing his winning mentality to these guys.
“If he can transfer that on to the pitch, that will honestly be just terrifying for all other clubs. We all saw the video of Bale with the win over Chelsea, and you can see how much he still cares and how passionate he is.
“At Madrid, for all he was training, he wasn’t really part of the team, and he felt left out. He would not have felt part of the team, as he wasn’t allowed to contribute anything.
“The opposite is when you are part of the team – even if injury is keeping you out, you still feel part of everything and you will want your team to win.”
