There are not enough words to completely describe this lad. His future remains to be amongst the stars where Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi rest in the world of football. Bale is built a like a complete athlete - he is tall, runs at tremendous speeds, strong and strikes the ball extremely well. However, his greatness was plagued with allegations of diving. The Welshman and his coach, Harry Redknapp, have denied all accusations but to date, Bale has received a total of five yellow cards for simulation.
