It de­fies logic how Spurs can af­ford Bale’s salary


SO Gareth Bale has re­turned to Eng­land and his reward is earn­ings of £ 600,000 a week (“Harry’s great en­ter­tain­ers”, Septem­ber 21).

I have to won­der how this sort of wage can be af­forded by Spurs in the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion, even with help from Real Madrid.

Gareth Bale will not be run­ning into burn­ing build­ings to res­cue peo­ple, he will not be per­form­ing life- sav­ing surgery, nurs­ing poorly chil­dren or fac­ing knife- wield­ing crim­i­nals.

I love foot­ball and, of course, Gareth can’t be blamed, as who in their right mind would turn down such money, if of­fered?

But I sin­cerely hope he is ap­pre­cia­tive of his in­cred­i­ble good for­tune.
