Owen Hargreaves told BT Sports coverage (Thursday, 7.50 pm) of Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Bulgarian Ludogorets that the tactical shift could make Gareth Bale “unplayable” during his second term at the club.
Bale, 31, made his fifth game for Tottenham since returning to the club – a few days after he scored his first goal in Monday’s 2-1 win over Brighton. It started from the right side and lasted an hour.
Goals by Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Gio Lo Celso ended a restful night in Bulgaria – despite Ludogorets scoring ahead of Tottenham’s third goal in the second half. Bell took more minutes in the tank.
He played on the right side but Hargreaves thinks Bale will be “unplayable” at Tottenham over the course of his loan spell and possibly thereafter if transferred to a more central role, and may play against Kane.
