Peter Crouch has revealed that Gareth Bale is a different player compared to the player he was Real Madrid. The Welshman made the switch to the Spanish capital back in 2013 and became the most expensive player in the process. Even though initial performances at Madrid were good, Bale was unable to overcome the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo. Over the last few years, he had fallen out with manager Zinedine Zidane that led to being frozen out of the first-team action. This had a negative impact on his form and confidence levels and Bale was never able to rediscover his former self.
Now, the Welshman has made a return to Tottenham where he made a name for himself. He enjoys a cult following at Tottenham. Among the many critics who have been able to notice an improvement in his performances, Peter Crouch is the 1st to voice his thoughts.
