Gareth Bale has struggled for a starting role at Tottenham this season.
The 31-year old’s return to his former club Tottenham Hotspur seems like a failure to his former teammate Dimitar Berbatov who played with Bale at Spurs during the 2007-08 season.
Bale has struggled to make an impact due to a mixture of poor form, injuries and fitness.

‘I was expecting a lot of him coming to Spurs, to shake things up and for him, Son and Kane to make it a trio up front that can rival the Liverpool attacking trio, for example,’ Berbatov told Stats Perform.
‘For the moment it is 100 per cent not working. Hopefully he can get back to 100 per cent and start playing. If not, in the end, it is an easy decision – he can go back to Madrid.’
‘Whatever the reason [for his lack of games] Gareth Bale is injury free now is because he’s on the bench for the team.
‘But he’s not playing from the from the first minute so it means that obviously he’s not producing the right level of football Jose Mourinho wants from him, which is a shame because I like him a lot.’
