The Welsh Man has taken a slight dig at parent club Real Madrid as he stated it’s ‘nice to be where I’m wanted’ after re-joining Tottenham in the summer.

The 31-year-old returned to Spurs on loan seven years after departing for Los Blancos having found game time hard to come by under Zinedine Zidane.

Gareth Bale has stated he is back in love with football again after returning to Tottenham, Bale endured a torrid time in Spain last season after being frozen out of Zinedine Zidane squad.

Since being back in North London, the ex-Southampton star has scored a goal and an assist in six games in all competitions so far.

And Bale has declared that he has rediscovered his hunger for football under Jose Mourinho.

Speaking ahead of Wales’ Nations League clash against Finland on Wednesday, Bale said: “I feel very happy and I have settled in very well at Tottenham.

“Coming back to a place where you feel loved gives to you the hunger to go again and to play for your fans who you know support you so much.

“It’s nice to be back playing and nice to be where I’m wanted.

“It has definitely helped being back in the UK.

“Hopefully that can continue and I can have a good season for Wales on top.

“Getting my fitness back and being back playing is what makes every player happy.

“I feel I’m in a good place but there is still more to come, more to improve, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Its nice to see him being happy at spurs after his wishy washy time at Madrid before his loan move to London.
