‘He was telling people’: Journalist shares what Gareth Bale kept saying in private when he was back at Spurs

Gareth Bale’s footballing career is over, and, these days, you’re way more likely to see him on a golf course than in a football stadium.


The Welshman, who recently participated in the Ryder Cup Celebrity All-Star competition and helped his side win, is most likely to remain in Rome this weekend to witness the Ryder Cup.

Bale has always had a love of golf, and according to Dan Kilpatrick of The Tottenham Way Podcast, he once considered becoming a professional.

Kilpatrick claims that Bale frequently mentioned his desire to become a professional golfer while on loan at Tottenham during the 2020–21 season. Sadly, it appears that plan did not pan out.

Bale always spoke about golfing

Kilpatrick revealed what he knew about Bale’s aspirations in golf.

“I recall that Bale had some hidden aspirations while he was playing for Spurs, and he told people that he wanted to try his hand at being a professional golfer. It hasn’t quite worked out, but I remember hearing that and thinking I was onto the story of a lifetime,” Kilpatrick added.

Still time

Bale still has plenty of time to improve as a golfer even though he hasn’t exactly broken through.

Considering that Bale is only 34 years old, his ability to almost play off a scratch handicap speaks something about his skill.

Given that he already possesses that elite sportsman mentality and that he has the money to pay for the best coaches in the business, he may very well succeed in this sport.

Don’t rule out Bale as a future golfing superstar just yet.


Juventus can sign forgotten Tottenham midfielder on one condition

Pierre-Emile Hjbjerg, who is wanted by Juventus, is apparently prepared to leave Tottenham in January because of a lack of playing time. However, the Bianconeri cannot afford a permanent deal unless they make a significant profit from a sale.

According to The recent contact between Hjbjerg’s agents and various European teams is a result of their client’s difficulty getting playing time under new coach Ange Postecoglou.

The Bianconeri may require a long-term replacement for Paul Pogba, who is now suspended after failing a drug test, therefore Hjbjerg has been linked with a move to Juventus.

Juventus cannot pay Tottenham’s €30 million asking price for their midfielder without offloading one of their players for a sizable sum. If this doesn’t occur, a financing agreement would be their sole option for acquiring Hjbjerg in January.

Hjbjerg, 28, has started no Premier League games thus far and has only appeared in 169 minutes of action for North London this year.
