Gareth Bale says he wants to use his experience to help Tottenham win trophies after returning to the club from Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old rejoins Spurs on a season-long deal seven years after he moved in the opposite direction in a then world-record transfer.

Bale arrives at Spurs in a double deal alongside left-back Sergio Reguilon. The Spaniard has signed a permanent deal, while Bale’s move is a loan.

At Madrid, Bale won four Champions Leagues, two LaLiga titles and a Copa del Rey among others. And he now hopes to bring success to the club where he first established himself as a world-class talent.

“I think by going to Madrid, winning trophies and going far with the national team I feel like I have that kind of winning mentality, how to win trophies,” said Bale, a Euro 2016 semi-finalist with Wales.

“You don’t realise it until you’re there and in those situations, in finals, know how to deal with the situation, the nerves, the pressure. And I think that all goes with experience.

“Hopefully I can bring that to the dressing room, bring a bit more belief to everybody that we can win a trophy. And the target is to do that this season, to be fighting on every front possible. I want to bring that mentality here, back to Tottenham.

“It’s an exciting time for everybody here, the club continues to progress every year. And I want to contribute to that again and try to get us to the next level, which is winning a trophy.

“It’s such an important thing for this club, to win trophies. As players, we want to win trophies in our careers. And to be doing it at Tottenham now would be a dream come true.”

Spurs’ last prize was the 2008 League Cup, with two more finals in that competition since. They have also reached four FA Cup semi-finals and a runner-up finish in the 2016/17 Premier League.

The club confirmed Bale would not be match fit until after October’s international break. That’s because he sustained a knee injury while on international duty earlier this month.

‘Incredible to be back’

Bale said in an interview posted on Tottenham’s Twitter feed: “It’s nice to be back. It’s such a special club to me. It’s where I made my name and what an amazing club, amazing fans.

He added: “It’s just incredible to be back and hopefully now I can get some match fitness and get under way and really help the team, and hopefully win trophies.

“I always thought when I did leave that one day I would love to come back. The opportunity now has arisen and I feel like it’s a good fit.

“I feel like it’s a good time for me. I’m hungry, I’m motivated, I want to do well for the team and I can’t wait to get started.”
