Bale: Premier League not world's best
GARETH BALE thinks the Premier League has lost its tag as the best in the world.
Bale spent six years at Tottenham before he moved to Real Madrid for a world-record fee of £85.3million.
The Premier League has always prided itself on supposedly being the most enthralling championship in world football, but for Bale the Primera Division is the best around.
"The Spanish League is the most exciting," the Welshman said.
"The world's top players play there. Barcelona or Real Madrid are always there near the Champions League final or winning it. The Premier League is a great league but we are attracting the best players to La Liga. It is great to be involved in it."
On the arrival of striker James Rodriguez from Monaco, Bale added: "James is a great signing. He has shown what quality he has in the World Cup."
