Villas Boas lauds Bale, compares with Ronaldo

Bale has now scored Tottenham’s last six goals, and the Portuguese said he was comparable with Cristiano Ronaldo when directly asked if the two could be compared.

“Yes, he’s going through a great individual moment, scoring lots of goals for the team,” said the Spurs coach.

“I think it’s his best goalscoring season for Tottenham. You just see that the player is really enjoying his football and taking a buzz out of it.

“We’ve seen him score three in two games from this situation and there is that possibility, there is an expectation because the player strikes it well and anything can happen, most likely a goal is likely to happen.”
