Gareth Bale 'very proud' of PFA awards

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gareth Bale, who won the English Professional Footballers' Association player of the year and young player of the year awards last night, has tweeted:


I'm very proud to have won two PFA awards and make the team of the year...


When it's your fellow pros who vote for the awards, it makes them feel that extra bit more special. Thanks for all the kind tweets!
