After a win against West Ham United, Gareth Bale said he desperately wants his team reach Champions League this season. The Welshman scored twice last night as his team went 4 points clear of fifth placed Arsenal in a battle for a Champions League qualification spot. The second goal was scored from a free kick just before the injury time.
The 23-year-old was, however, modest about his own contributions of late and insisted the most important aim was for the team to secure a return to the Champions League.
"I'm just enjoying the football. The team's playing well which makes things easier. But it's not about me it's about the team," Bale told Sky Sports.
"We know it’s going to be a massive game, they are a great team. We obviously want to get the three points to keep our Champions League hopes alive.
"Yeah, it was a massive victory for us. We knew the result for us yesterday, we knew we had a massive chance to get into third, which obviously gives us more of a cushion.”
And the Welshman believes his side were good value for the win, despite its dramatic nature: "It was a hard performance out there but I thought we deserved the victory.
"We had a lot of chances, especially off corners. Caulks [Steven Caulker] had a few chances, one went on the post, Ade [Emmanuel Adebayor] had an easy one. The important thing was we got the three points.
"We know what we're capable of. We've got some last-minute winners in the last month. So we're confident and we keep battling until the end."
