The Spurs talisman is available for selection after recovering from an ankle injury.
There is great news for Tottenham fans ahead of the side’s crucial Premier League match against Manchester City on Sunday as Andre Villas Boas confirms Gareth Bale is in the squad.
The Spurs boss will have his iconic winger available in what could prove to be a decisive game in AVB’s quest for Champions League football next season.
Bale has been on the sidelines for his team’s last two matches after picking up an ankle injury in Tottenham’s 2-2 Europa League quarter final first-leg draw with FC Basel on 11 April.
At the time the damage to the 23-year-old looked significantly worse but now it seems the Welshman is fit enough to return to action just a little over two weeks since the incident.
Bale’s inclusion will be a massive confidence boost for Spurs as the winger has been their best player by some distance in 2012/13 season and has been nominated for the prestigious PFA Player of the Year award.
Tottenham are chasing a top four finish and therefore a place in next year’s Champions League, but have lost pace on rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in recent weeks after dropping points at home against Fulham and Everton and currently sit in fifth position, two points off the pace.
However, Bale has been instrumental in the side’s good performances over the season scoring crucial goals and terrorising opposition defences.
The Wales international has netted 17 Premier League goals this campaign – the highest total for a player who is not an out-and-out striker – and his incredible form has linked him with a move away from White Hart Lane.
A win against Man City on Sunday would ease the pressure on AVB and his side and with Bale in the team there is every chance of that happening.
