‘He was telling people’: Journalist shares what Gareth Bale kept saying in private when he was back at Spurs

Gareth Bale’s playing days are ended, and these days you can find him on the golf course much more frequently than in a football arena.

The Welshman, who recently participated in the Ryder Cup Celebrity All-Star competition and helped his side win, is most likely to remain in Rome this weekend to witness the Ryder Cup.


Bale has always had a love of golf, and according to Dan Kilpatrick of The Tottenham Way Podcast, he once considered becoming a professional.

Kilpatrick claims that Bale frequently mentioned his desire to become a professional golfer while on loan at Tottenham during the 2020–21 season. Sadly, it appears that plan did not pan out.

Bale frequently discussed golf.

Kilpatrick revealed what he knew about Bale’s aspirations in golf.

“I recall that Bale had some hidden aspirations while he was playing for Spurs, and he told people that he wanted to try his hand at being a professional golfer. It hasn’t quite worked out, but I remember hearing that and thinking I was onto the story of a lifetime,” Kilpatrick added.

Still time

Bale hasn’t quite made it as a golfer yet, but he still has plenty of time to progress in that field.

Bale isn’t old, he’s only 34 years old, and the fact that he’s already almost playing off a scratch handicap shows just how good he is.

He certainly has the money to pay for the top coaches in the game, and given that he already has that elite sportsman mentality, he could well end up making it in this sport.

Don’t write off Bale as a potential golf star just yet.


Callum Wilson responds to what James Maddison, a star for Tottenham, did during the North London Derby.

After witnessing what James Maddison, a star for Tottenham Hotspur, did in the North London Derby on Sunday, Callum Wilson has responded.

At the Emirates Stadium, Maddison shone for Spurs by contributing two assists to his team’s 2-2 tie.After transferring from Leicester City to Tottenham in the summer, the 26-year-old has been a revelation.

He has swiftly established himself as a fan favourite at Spurs, and his altercation with Bukayo Saka on Sunday will only have consolidated that sentiment.

Indeed, Saka re-created Maddison’s celebration after his effort led to Cristian Romero scoring an own goal.

Maddison responded by beating Saka with a brilliant piece of skill down the left-hand side before setting up Son for Tottenham’s leveller.

Wilson reacts after seeing what Maddison did in the NLD

Wilson admitted that he was hoping Maddison would crack out his celebration in response to Saka after creating Tottenham’s equaliser.

“I did see it,” the Newcastle United star said. “Saka is funny, he did Rashford’s celebration against United and now he’s done Madders’ one.

“So I’m not sure if they have had a bit of banter and said I’m going to do your celebration but it was funny to see.

“We were on the coach on the way to our match and I saw Saks doing the darts celebration and I was like ‘oh no’. And then Madders got an assist by turning Saks and I was thinking ‘oh no’ and I wanted him to do the darts celebration back but he didn’t. It was too funny.”

Of course, Saka and Maddison are England teammates but they put their friendship aside on Sunday.

Maddison even joked after the game that Saka made a terrible attempt to mimic his celebration.

It would have been brilliant to see Maddison return the favour after Saka also copied his celebration after netting in the second half.

Nevertheless, the Tottenham star will be delighted with his derby display as he helped Postecoglou’s men pick up a well-deserved point.
