Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale has said on Twitch that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer he has played with in his career so far.

Bale did a Q&A on Twitch this afternoon, and the Tottenham star was asked the best player he has ever played with.

The Wales international, who returned to Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020, said that it is Juventus forward Ronaldo.

The 31-year-old played with the Portugal international at Madrid before the forward left for Juventus in 2018.

The 36-year-old was on the books of Madrid from 2009 until 2018, while Bale moved to the Spanish and European giants in the summer of 2013.

Bale said on Twitch (3:02pm, March 9, 2021): “Cristiano Ronaldo. For me, just the amount of goals he scores and the titles that we won together. I think arguably one of the best ever to play football. For me, I will have to say him.”

Successful Real Madrid spell

It must have been great for Bale to play alongside Ronaldo and be part of something special at Madrid.

The Wales international has won the La Liga title twice and the Champions League on four occasions with Madrid so far.

Things have not been easy for Bale in the past two seasons due to injuries and competition for places in the team, but the winger is starting to get his old form back at Tottenham.
