Bale is no inferior to Ronaldo - Redknapp

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp
says Gareth Bale still reminds him of Cristiano Ronaldo, despite his current struggles at Real Madrid, but says he must "sort himself out".

The 25-year-old has been booed by his
own fans and criticised by the Spanish press on multiple occasions this season after an inconsistent run of form since the turn of the year.

Redknapp bought Bale from
Southampton in 2007 and turned him
from a left-back to a winger, and says he
needs the freedom to roam if he is to
return to his best.

He told AS: "For me, he’s like Cristiano.
You’ve got to give him the ball; once he
gets it, he’ll gain a yard, then two and put
himself in a position where he can shoot
with the kind of power that no one has –
or dribble through defences which is something that only a few players do in
today’s game.
I’d give him all the
freedom in the world.

"Both of them are players who like to
roam freely, Bale slightly behind... They
are players who feel more comfortable"
