Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale has expressed his gratitude at being back in action for Spurs following their 2-1 win over Southampton this weekend. The former Saints player was on the scoresheet in his return from injury, and now sees his side flying high in fourth place in the league.
“It was great to come back and it was obviously great to get back on the scoresheet,” Bale told ITV after the match.
“I thought I best keep my celebrations to a minimum in a show of respect to the club.
“I think they came out in the second half fighting. They knew they had to bring the game to us and had nothing to lose really.
“They made it difficult for us in the second half and played some good football but we showed our character.
“We hung in there and got the three points we needed.
“I think the main thing for us is to take it one game at a time.
“We’re enjoying our football now and we’re on a good run so it is good times but we just need to keep our feet on the ground and move forward.”
