Bale will peak as best in world, says Brian Flynn

Brian Flynn, former manager of Wales U21s, says Gareth Bale will become the world's best player by the time he reaches his peak in a few years' time.

He says the 24-year-old former Tottenham star's determination, level head and family support will keep him grounded despite the fame and pressure of becoming a £85m record signing and joining Real Madrid.

Flynn, who was in charge of Wales' national youth teams including the Under-21s, between 2004-12, spoke to BBC Radio Wales sports presenter Gareth Lewis.
