Jose Mourinho Says Tottenham Have Not Discussed Gareth Bale’s Future At The Club: The player’s future at the club is up in the smoke with him failing to get Premier League minutes
Although Tottenham supporters were rejoicing after Gareth bale decided to re-join the club on loan from Real Madrid, aficionados of the game knew things weren’t quite going to be so rosy.
And the player’s second coming at the English club has unfolded in exactly that manner. Waning in form across the last two years, Gareth Bale has failed to overhaul that underachieving form to see him be left on the fringes by Mourinho.
Used sparsely in the league with him featuring for just a half of football till now, many have started questioning if Gareth Bale would be released midway into his loan.
Jose on Gareth Bale
The player who is currently at Tottenham till the end of this season after having joined from Real Madrid on loan has been the subject of a return. However, Mourinho was quick to quash those reports when he spoke ahead of his side’s weekend fixture.
“There was not even a second of discussion about that,” Mourinho said when asked about Bale’s future at the club.
“Gareth is a player on loan until the end of the season. Not one second of discussion. We are speaking about, of course, Gareth, himself, Real Madrid, Tottenham, but I promise you, not one second of discussion.”
“Of course you know that he arrived injured, and he was injured before, I believe, the first month,” Mourinho added. “And then, step by step, Europa League matches were helping him to get his condition.
“The Europa League group phase is a different level than the Premier League. The knock-out is a different story.
“But the group phase is a different intensity, a different rhythm, a different quality. So in the Premier League, he didn’t play many minutes.
“Then another small injury at Stoke where he was having a good first half.
“Everybody knew that in the past couple of seasons, in Madrid, they were not easy for him. So let’s go, step by step, and try to get the best out of him.”
