Frenchman claims north Londoners do not have a winning culture.
Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Gareth Bale should leave White Hart Lane this summer, according to World Cup winner Marcel Desailly, reports BBC Sport Online.
The Wales international has just enjoyed yet another eye-catching season for the north London club, culminating in the 23-year-old being crowned the double Footballer of the Year.
Bale, who is contracted to Tottenham until the end of June 2016, managed to find the back of the net on 21 occasions in just 33 Premier League outings for Andre Villas-Boas’s side.
Meanwhile overall, the wide man also registered an equally impressive 26 strikes in only 44 matches in all competitions, however, despite those outstanding numbers Spurs were only capable of finishing the campaign in fifth place in the Premier League and so dd not qualify for next season’s Uefa Champions League.
And that is why the ex-Marseille, AC Milan and Chelsea star believes the winger should leave the capital this summer. saying: “He should go, he should just go. Tottenham will not give him the opportunity to play at a very high level.
“There’s no price for experience. I think it’s the time for him to go.
“He needs to discover, as [David] Beckham has done, that an English guy or a Welsh guy has the capacity to export himself.
“It’s not a matter of money because he has [money] where he is at Tottenham – it’s just the experience.
“Experience to play at a very high level at a club that has the culture of victory, a club that has trophies in the cupboard – not one or two, but plenty.
“To experience playing with other big players, to be maybe a second choice.
“To face difficulty, a new language for his family.
“It’s a real change of life and an approach to life as a human being and as a soccer player.”
