It’s very annoying and it’s the same with Real Madrid and what he’s achieved for them. They should be kissing the floor he walks on.”
Bale, 31, is expected to be fit for Spurs’ October 17 clash at home to West Ham.
Speaking on Talksport’s Sports Bar show, Barnett added: “For somebody who has done as well as he has for Real Madrid, he didn’t get the respect he deserved – that was a big problem.”
