Gareth Bale doesn’t make us a one man team claims Tottenham team-mate
Tottenham look likely to reach next season’s Champions League which would certainly improve their chances of hanging on to arguably the best player in the Premier League.

Gareth Bale has been outstanding for the whole season in a Spurs shirt and has now scored in his last four matches, bagging the winner against West Brom and Newcastle while also rescuing a point for his team at Norwich.
However, Lewis Holtby has denied that Tottenham are all about one player and claims that the whole team are good enough to compete at the top end of the Premier League.
He told the Daily Star: “He’s a world-class player. What he’s producing week in, week out is fantastic and to have a player like Bale makes the difference.
“But it’s not only Gareth. You have to give the credit to the others. It’s a great team. Of course he scores goals. He is perfect for us but every player in the team works hard for the club.
“You see (goalkeeper) Hugo Lloris, how he saved the chance at the end against Newcastle. The defenders put their bodies into every shot. Everyone is working really hard, that’s the key.”
Indeed, Spurs are defensively solid under Andre Villas-Boas and are now creeping towards a top four spot although whether Bale remains at the club this summer will be open to huge speculation.
