He may have made his name at Tottenham but Gareth Bale has admitted he grew up supporting their north London rivals Arsenal.
The Welsh winger joined Spurs from Southampton in 2007 and spent six years at the club before his world-record (at the time) £86million transfer to Real Madrid.
Speaking on Cadena SER radio show, Bale said:
‘I used to actually like Arsenal a lot.
‘But when I went to Tottenham I went away from Arsenal. Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira were amazing footballers.’
