Mourinho may hold Gareth Bale from his Tottenham return against West Ham

Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t The Express), Jose Mourinho has hinted that Gareth Bale may have to wait a while to make his return for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Welsh winger arrived at the club injured and is yet to make an appearance for Spurs this season. Having returned to training, there was hope that he could feature against West Ham this weekend.

Mourinho however is staying cautious. He recognizes the need to not rush Bale into action and may hold off against bringing him back into action.

“The decisions we are going to make are going to be for the good of the team, but also for his own good.”

According to Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold of Football.london, the jury is still out on whether Bale will indeed play against the Hammers.

If he does sit out this weekend, Bale could very well be back in the team to face LASK in the Europa League group stage fixture on Thursday.

Bale spent six years at Tottenham before moving to Real Madrid in 2013. During that time, he made 203 appearances, scoring 56 goals and assisting 58 more.

A two-time PFA Player of the Year winner, the 31-year-old was unplayable at his best. While he may have toned down in recent years, he remains a key threat who can add much to the Spurs frontline.
