Tottenham star positive over Gareth Bale sale

10. The old guard can still cut it

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Brad Friedel believes the new look Spurs side is stronger than last season despite losing Gareth Bale.

Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas has spent over £100million revamping his squad with Bale joining Real Madrid for a world record transfer fee.

Despite Bale being considered as one of the best players in the world at the moment, Friedel feels the North London club  are now stronger with their new additions and he is ultimately pleased that Bale was shipped off to Spain.

Friedel admits that losing a key player is usually a negative at a club but he sees this summer as a massive positive for Tottenham and their supporters.

“It’s not always that a manager and a board can turn what could have been a massive negative, losing someone like Gareth Bale, into a massive positive,” Friedel told talkSPORT.

“Losing a player like Gareth Bale would normally make your squad weaker, but I don’t think that’s the case. I think our squad is stronger for it.”
