We have won seven games in a row and, at the end of the day, the coach wants what is best for the team. I had hoped to have more playing time, but what I have to do now is make the most of the opportunities I get.' Team-mate Santi Cazorla warned him to be patient . Lucas understands patience .

Souness said Bale can help Spurs, who finished sixth in the league last season, become more competitive against teams that are fighting for the title.

"With Bale on board... Spurs can catapult themselves back to a Champions League spot. I'm not saying they will be title contenders but they can take points off the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United," Souness wrote.

"The reason for that isn't down to Bale alone but because of the combined potency of their front three. Bale, Kane and Son - this is an attack that deserves to be bracketed alongside Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool.

"It's not impossible that each of those Spurs players could end the season with 20 goals to their name. That more than makes up for their deficiencies at the back and in midfield."

Spurs have won two of their opening four games this season to sit sixth in the league with seven points.
