The Spurs’ defender believes the criticisms Bale is facing are unjust.

Bale did not have a great start at Tottenham, however, the Spur's Welshman's unfortunate trend seems to have ended in recent weeks and he has now become an influential figure in the Spurs squad.

The 31-year-old has widely been criticized since he joined Tottenham but teammate,

Ben Davies

believes Bale is of high quality and he is doing everything he can to help the team.

"When you have players of his quality, the levels he has reached in the game, whether it be Gareth Bale, Cristiano, Messi, everyone has a story about them being great now or poor the next day or not reaching the heights they have reached,”

Davies said.

"Gareth has had a lot of criticism, probably unjustly, when he was at the top of his form. He is an incredibly tough person to have to deal with some of the stuff he has had to deal with off the field and still perform the way he has throughout his career.

"Even after four Champions Leagues, what he’s done for the national team, what he did for Real Madrid, he still gets questioned about his ability. That must be tough to take. I think he deals with it pretty incredibly. He is a terrific footballer and a great bloke.

"Expectation is all opinionated. You might have had a different expectation to what I had. Gareth is Gareth. He always gives his best and I think we have seen in games this year, he has scored goals and made assists. He has got the quality there. I am sure we will see it for the rest of the season."
