When Tottenham was pursuing Ben Davies this summer, he turned to an old friend for advice. You may know him, because it was ...
Hello. Is it me you're looking for?
... sorry? Where was I? Oh. It was Gareth Bale.
I can see it in your eyes.
.... Is it getting hot in here?
Anyway, according to Davies,
"I spoke to him briefly about it, nothing too in-depth, but it was nice just to have that insight from him," said Davies. "He told me what the club was like and how it worked, and what he said really appealed to me.
I can see it in your smile.
Davies goes on to talk about the adjustment and how good it is to have two leftbacks competing for minutes. While I think we're all surprised that Rose has held onto the starting spot, it is undoubtedly an improvement to have two qualified left backs on the roster at the same time! And we owe it all to our beautiful Welsh prince.
You're all I've ever wanted and my arms are open wide
