Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale is happy with manager Andre Villas-Boas's approach to training and says that the Portuguese is "very approachable".

Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale has said that he is impressed with Andre Villas-Boas's managerial style.

The Portuguese coach replaced Harry Redknapp at the start of the 2012-13 campaign, and after initially struggling has led Spurs to three wins out of their last four competitive fixtures.

"He's very approachable," Bale told The Guardian. "If there is a problem, or something we feel is not right, his door is open.

"He wants us to work that way: together, the players and staff, and if there is a problem we can always share our ideas with him and he will take it on board. For example, if we feel we are working too hard in training, if we say that to him, then he'll ease it off.

"He's still learning as well as a manager but he does all the coaching and everything himself, which is great. Every manager is different and he has his own ways of working. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of time."

Tottenham are at Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
