Gareth Bale Biography
A talented left-sided player who joined Tottenham Hotspur from Southampton in May 2007 when he was still only 17 years old.
Gareth started out as an attacking left back but has subsequently pushed forward into a more advanced role on the left side of midfield. Gareth has plenty of pace, good passing skills and contributes a healthy tally of goals.
He has since gone on to produce some superb performances, perhaps the best of which came in the Champions League tie away to Inter Milan in October 2010 when he scored a hat-trick. He went on to set up two of his team's goals in the return fixture which saw Spurs triumph over their Serie A opponents.
He was again in excellent form in 2011-12 when he was rarely absent from the line-up and reached a double-figure goals tally. He was also selected for the PFA Premier League Team of the Season for the second successive year.
Gareth made his full international debut for Wales as a 16-year-old and has continued to retain his place in the team.
