Jose Mourinho pleased with Gareth Bale in the comeback win against Wycombe

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he was pleased with the performance of Gareth Bale in the 4-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup.

Having gone behind early in the game, Tottenham had to claw their back into it, with Bale kickstarting the fightback by scoring the equalising goal. Late strikes from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks helped seal the win, taking us to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Mourinho, who had warned Bale in the buildup to the game that he needed to prove that he deserves more playing minutes, claimed that he was pleased with the Welshman’s application on Monday night.

“It was good. Some good movement. Some one against ones, beating people, attacking people, creating chances. Of course, scoring a goal.”

The Portuguese tactician also praised Bale for playing the entire ninety minutes, insisting that he never felt the need to change the Welshman at any point in the game.

“Apart from that, I never felt he couldn’t play the 90 minutes. I never felt that I needed to change him and that is good. Of course, the Championship [Wycombe’s division] is a good, competitive level and the aggression is high and the intensity is good. So I’m happy.”

The win sets us up in a good way for the upcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool. The reigning champions, who were dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United, will be aiming to bounce back to winning ways and will pose a tough challenge. A win against Jurgen Klopp & co. would take us into the top four of the table.
