Did Spurs Superstar Gareth Bale Name His Baby Daughter After His Boss? The Clue Is In Her Initials!

Did Spurs superstar Gareth Bale name his baby daughter after his boss? The clue is in her initials!

Mickey-taking footballers have accused Tottenham Hotspur superstar Gareth Bale of naming his baby daughter after his boss!

Team mate Jermain Defoes admits he gives the striker grief for naming his little girl AVB (Alba Violet Bale) when she was born in October.

The Welsh wizard has always refused to confirm reports that he named his daughter after his Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Defoe, who has just become a dad for the first time, said: "Gaz has little AVB and is buzzing. I give him stick about her initials. He is the first to give someone banter. So when you have a chance to give it back, you take it."
