Villas-Boas Praises Bale’s Individual Brilliance for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas was full of praise of his star player Gareth Bale as the Welshman was once again a key figure in his team’s 2-1 victory over Lyon in the first leg of Europa League second round fixture on Thursday.

Bale scored all of Spurs goals from free kicks and that special skill brought a slight of relief for Villas-Boas as Spurs were in the verge of only picking up a home draw before the Welshman scored a winning goal deep in stoppage time.

Villas-Boas is happy to have someone like Bale who can produce moments of individual brilliance during games, which often helpful especially when the match is very tight such as what happened on Thursday.
