'It's a team effort' - Gareth

Gareth Bale underwent something of a transformation last season as he emerged from the fringes of the side to become the star man in the latter stages of the campaign - earning himself a deserved new contract in the process.

Indeed, seeing Gareth photographed with one award after another became commonplace for Spurs fans as the Welsh international enjoyed a marvellous conclusion to what was ultimately a highly successful season.

Yet - and typical of the man - Bale shies away from the individual recognition and is much happier to lay the credit at the door of his team-mates.

In an exclusive interview in the current issue of hotspur magazine, Bale says: "You can only achieve as a team and while I've been fortunate...I have to pay tribute to all the other lads. The club is going in the right direction and I'm delighted to be here.

"It's always nice to receive an award from your own fans as they are the people who watch you every week," adds Bale, the recipient of our One Hotspur ‘Young Player of the Year' award, together with a number of other accolades. "Our supporters have always been great to me and I really appreciate that because I rate them as the best around."

Read what Bale has to say about the season overall, the Champions League and his expectations as Wales look ahead to facing England in the European Championships. And Harry Redknapp, Ledley King, Michael Dawson and Luka Modric all line up to pay their own tributes to the success story that is Gareth Bale.

It's all in the June issue of hotspur, our ever-popular monthly magazine that keeps you in touch throughout the summer. If you're a true Spurs fan, you can't afford to miss it.
