The Wales trio of Bale, Ben Davies and Joe Rodon have jokingly dubbed themselves a ‘mafia’ group and reaffirmed that with a ‘WM’ celebration that the ex-Real Madrid man has shown off numerous times in recent weeks.
And while South Korean attacker Son may not be a compatriot of Bale’s, he has confirmed he is still a part of the Welsh clique.
Speaking on Spurs’ official Twitch channel, Tottenham’s No 9 said: “He’s (Son) basically Welsh to us. We’re a bit disappointed because all the pictures have us three and Lucas – but really Sonny should be the fourth man.
“We knew the other Mafia was Moussa, Serge and Tanguy – La Mafia. So we decided to create a Welsh Mafia, but the original Welsh Mafia had four of us because Sonny is in it.”
Bale has found his form at Tottenham in recent weeks as he, Son and Harry Kane begin to become a formidable attacking trio. The four-time Champions League winner has now scored ten goals in 22 appearances this season.
He has also netted a brace in each of his last two Premier League home games against Burnley and Crystal Palace.
Spurs have climbed to sixth in the table as they go in pursuit of a Champions League place and are now just five points off fourth place Chelsea with a game in hand.
Jose Mourinho’s side face Dinamo Zagreb in the first leg of their European tie this evening.
