Why do I say, Bale could prefer to be a key player of our champions league qualification project rather be a squad player in Real Madrid, sitting in a bench. When I mean a key player, he is an impactful player, be able to influence the game & its direction.
At his age, it is natural to aim for the stars, be part of the bigger league, do big things, and enticed to be part of Real Madrid squad. However, the right thing to do is to take a step back and assess the current situation. Learning with spurs players, under the guidance of AvB is unique and of course experimental. What’s life without experimentation ? There is a 50-50 chance that, Bale will enjoy, achieve more accolades during 2013-2014 season. In my view, it is worth taking a shot. Bale looks comfortable under the guiance/coaching of AvB. By now, he would have known the approach, tactics and prioritization of AvB. Therefore, learning in a known environment, helps to grow further by contributing more to spurs. By this, Bale will be more visible in the footballing league.
On the contrary, if Bale leaves to Real Madrid, of course, he will have access to more sophisticated players, techniques, branding, image, money, fame etc. He will also play in champions league football and be part of some key winning moments. Bale might be trained to fight against Barca, get fatigued and some time be benched too, like Luka Modric. There is a 20-80 chance that, Bale might succeed. Besides, the uncertainty on the new coach for Real Madrid might further make the playing climate difficult for
Therefore, on the outside, for spurs fan like me, determining/saying/commenting on the right thing is simple and easy. However, Bale being in the limelight & part of this situation, it is very difficult to make a right choice. As the quote in the subject line says, it is easy to hurry up, be target oriented and get things, but will it be a pleasant experience ? Perhaps, he should ask Luka Modric on his choice 😉
How did Bale score his goals ?
