Gareth Bale has been declared fit and may play against Manchester City on Sunday, according to manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Bale injured his ankle and was stretchered off the pitch on April 4 in an Europa League tie against Basel. Initial concerns were that Bale would be out for the season, but the Welsh winger recuperated quickly and may start or play a part in the key match on Sunday (8:30am ET kick-off).

It’s been a good day for Bale. In addition to being declared fit, Bale has been nominated for two Player of the Year awards.

    It’s ok Wayne… Cme to Spurs, play upfront balewillppa behind you…. No worries….you’ll be back to enjoying your football

  2. Bucky says:

    I am sure Barry will greet Bale with about 12 fouls.

  3. Dave says:

    Spurs need Bale and Lennon as they play better with them in the side. Without these two players in the side it will be difficult for Spurs to finish above Arsenal. Arsenal have the easier schedule left while Spurs have City and Chelsea on their list. Unless Spurs get at least a draw on Sunday I think they’ll miss out on the top 4. Of course, Arsenal has to beat Fulham on Saturday.

    Declared fit and “may” play? It the biggest game of the year so far he’d best be on the pitch for Spurs to have a chance.
