Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is a pundit I find myself agreeing with a lot of the time. However, last night after the Leicester City match, the former Chelsea star said that he believes Gareth Bale is still suffering from lack of game time at Real Madrid, and a continued lack of game time at Tottenham.
Jimmy’s quotes carried by The Sun sound reasonable enough, but just how long does a player get to find their feet in the Premier League, when on a one season loan?
I take a view here that Bale isn’t the problem, and that the core issue is who bought him. At a million pounds a month in salary going out the door, in the midst of a pandemic, which shows no signs of slowing, Bale is an excruciatingly expensive overhead.
My only question was, whose idea was this? And the answer from a source close to the club was ‘Levy’s’.
Can Bale be returned in January?
