Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has revealed that he may celebrate should he score against former club Tottenham Hotspur in this season’s Champions League. Madrid and Spurs have been drawn in Group H alongside Borussia Dortmund and APOEL.
When asked about whether he would celebrate should he find the net against the Lilywhites, Bale told the Daily Mail, “I scored against Spurs in a pre-season game a couple of years ago and I didn’t really celebrate then.
“I suppose it depends on how you feel on the day. If it’s a 91st-minute winner, can you control yourself? That’s the question.
“I remember playing against Real Madrid when I was still at Tottenham and ‘Crouchy’ (Peter Crouch) being sent off after only 15 minutes and that killed the game for us.
“All my friends are still Tottenham fans. That is their team in the Premier League and I will certainly have a lot of ticket requests.”
Bale will likely have to play against his former club whom he left in 2013 to join Madrid in a deal worth £85 million.
Since transferring to Spain, the Welsh international has enjoyed tremendous success and went on to win the Champions League three times during the past four seasons.
