Gareth Bale says 'the sky is the limit' for new big-money Tottenham transfer as he backs him to improve | The Sun

GARETH BALE has said the "sky is the limit" for Tottenham and Wales star Brennan Johnson.

Spurs brought the forward to the Lane from Nottingham Forest in a £47.5million deadline day deal.

Johnson scored eight goals and registered three assists in 33 league appearances during his debut season in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old is in line to make his Tottenham debut this weekend as Spurs welcome Sheffield United to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Wales captain and former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has already described Johnson's potential as "scary" but admitted that he wished the forward hadn't signed for Tottenham.

Bale echoed Ramsey's praise for Johnson when talking to Sky Sports at the PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am at Wentworth.

On Johnson's potential, the former Real Madrid winger said: "He’s doing well, he’s doing well.

“I think the more he plays now in the top flight, the better he’ll get. Like you said, the sky is the limit.

“I think as long as he’s playing football and improving, it’s good for Tottenham and it’s good for Wales also.”

Reacting to Ramsey's comments, Bale also managed to get in a dig at his former North London rivals, saying he was happy with Johnson's choice of Premier League club and saying it was: "Better than Arsenal."

Bale also revealed that he was a fan of new Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou and said: "Yeah it's great, they've got their style back. I think that's something that the club was looking for as well after seeing how he performed and played at Celtic.

"[It's a] Great start and hopefully there's more to come from the team and then there'll just keep getting better and better with the new manager and the new kind of style.

"Hopefully they can put themselves up there and give themselves a chance."

Bale was also asked about Jude Bellingham, who has had an electrifying impact at Bale's former club Real Madrid since joining this summer.

The 20-year-old has five goals and one assist in his four LaLiga games so far this season.

And Bale has backed him to continue that success, saying: "He's obviously had a great start at Madrid. He's scoring goals which is important, especially at a club like that.

"To get off to a good start at a club like Madrid is obviously important. He's doing well and hopefully he can keep doing well and keep doing Britain proud."
