He was named in the PFA Team of the Year three times in a row, 2010/11, 2011/12, and 2012/13. Bale managed to win a host of trophies during his time with Real Madrid, including two LaLiga titles, two UEFA Super Cups, and three FIFA World Club Cups. He contributed 105 goals in 251 appearances for the Spanish side.
On his second stint at Tottenham, the Wales international started 10 of the 20 matches he featured in in the Premier League, scoring 11 goals along the way.
