Fan Creates Hilarious Compilation Of Gareth Bale's Second Spurs Debut

Fan Creates Hilarious Compilation Of Gareth Bale's Second Spurs Debut

Gareth Bale did not enjoy the best second Spurs debut and his cameo has now been made into a hilarious compilation.

The on-loan Real Madrid star entered the fray with the North London outfit 3-0 up and cruising courtesy of two from Harry Kane and one from Heung-Min Son that was set up by the England captain in the first minute.

Bale came on the 72nd minute at the same time as Manuel Lanzini was sent on by West Ham and it was the Argentine who had the big impact.

After the Hammers had struck twice in quick succession through Fabian Balbuena and a Davinson Sanchez own goal, Lanzini unleashed a last-gasp rocket to snatch a point.

And while the Bale curse ended years ago, it wasn't the return the Welshman would have been hoping for. This clip, set to 50 Cent 'Many Men' shows that he wasn't really at the races.

His first contribution was a tame long-range free-kick and he went on to give the ball away cheaply on three occasions - one being courtesy of a very heavy touch.

Zidane Gives His Brutally Honest Thoughts On Gareth Bale's Transfer To Spurs

The one encouraging sequence was when it looked like he was about to mark his second debut with a goal. Kane fed him through and Bale danced past Angelo Ogbonna before firing wide inside the area when you were expecting the goal to bulge.

Just minutes later was when Lanzini came up clutch with superbly struck shot that went in off the bar, leading to David Moyes running on the pitch in celebration.

There was definitely an element of rustiness from Bale in his performance but Jose Mourinho refused to criticise him post-match.

"The decision not to start him was I think a good decision," Mourinho said, explaining why Bale was on the bench.

"A decision to show that he doesn't have a beautiful chair waiting for him in the team and he sits there the first time he can. It was a message to the team that in this team everybody has to fight for positions.

"He's very well accepted in the group. Everyone likes him, and I believe he also likes what he found here. So everything is positive and the focus was not on him.

"The focus was on the game and he was on the bench for 65 minutes or so and I don't think so, I don't think at all.

"It's a pity that he couldn't score that fourth goal which was a beauty and would have killed the game. But that's football."
