Charlie Adam has stated that he wants to end his personal feud with Gareth Bale ahead of the World Cup qualifying match-up between Scotland and Wales.
The Stoke midfielder has been guilty of injuring the Tottenham winger on two separate occasions, with the latest a nasty tackle in a pre-match friendly in the United States.
Despite the animosity between the players, Adam is eager to draw a line under what has happened previously.
“Bale is good, quick but I don’t think they are a one-man team,” Adam is quoted as saying in The Guardian.
“They have a number of players, like we have, who can win the game on their day. Aaron Ramsey is a top player, there is Ashley Williams, and Joe Allen at Liverpool. I wouldn’t just single out Gareth Bale. But he is a top player and if we can stop him it will probably enhance our performance and probably our chances of winning the game.”
Adam believes that he will most likely not come into direct contact with Bale however.
“Nope – because he will not be playing on my side. Whoever plays at right-back or left-back will deal with him. What has happened in the past has happened in the past, the most important thing is playing for Scotland and getting a result,” he concluded.
