A former manager of one of Real Madrid's stars believes the player has enough to his game to reach the heights of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he was convinced that Welshman Gareth Bale would become the best player in the world when he joined Los Blancos four seasons ago, and the 64-year-old now believes the forward has everything in his locker he needs to match the likes of Ronaldo and Messi.
"Bale has everything," Redknapp said, as quoted by Marca.
"He's great in the air, is strong, can run long distances and has a venomous shot.
"When Gareth joined Real Madrid, I said he was behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but now all he has to do is claim his place at the top."
Asked if he thought the Welshman can win the Ballon d'Or this year, Redknapp was quick to respond.
"I think he could win this year if he has a good Champions League," he added.
The 27-year-old winger has begun the 2016/17 season well, having score two goals in three La Liga matches already.
