According to Harry Redknapp, his former charge, Gareth Bale is good enough to win the Ballon d’Or.
Redknapp managed the Wales international at Tottenham, before he was sold to Madrid and has won two UCL titles.
And Redknapp feels his current form is enough to win him the gong ahead of others.
“Yes, he can win the Ballon d’Or,” Redknapp told Goal. “I think he is in the top five at the moment anyway. I think he is up there, I think he is a fantastic talent.
“If any of the top teams in the Premier League managed to buy him back, he would be the difference between winning the league and not. If he came back to England, he would be the best player in the league.
“If he went to Man City, I think Man City would win the league, if he had gone to Man Utd, I’d have fancied Man Utd to do it. If he went back to Tottenham, then Tottenham to win it. Chelsea, I’d say Chelsea. That is the difference he would make.”
