Ex-Tottenham manager David Pleat says Gareth Bale is too young to move abroad
Former Spurs manager and director of football David Pleat says Gareth Bale is too young to play his football overseas.
He reckons the 24-year-old would be making a big mistake if he choose to play his football abroad with Real Madrid.
Pleat told BBC Sport: “I think he’s a little bit young to go abroad.
“I doubt he’d find it easy. Many have failed when they have moved overseas.”
He added: “One or two have succeeded, but not many. Most have had a difficult time. I think he is young to go, but he might feel that, with his partner and baby, it will be a new start for him.
“I think it might be better if he stayed, continued to work and maybe next summer leave if that is his wish.”
