Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho addresses Gareth Bale situation

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has addressed the situation surrounding the game-time of winger Gareth Bale.

Over the last couple of games, Bale has been Tottenham’s brightest player. After a dull start to life in his second spell at the club, the 31-year-old has finally started to show his quality.

However, having started in the first leg against Wolfsberger, Mourinho opted to bench him in the Premier League game against West Ham United at the weekend. Bale came on as a substitute and almost sparked a turnaround, assisting a goal and hitting the woodwork but couldn’t help Spurs salvage anything from the game.

And ahead of the second leg against Wolfsberger, Jose has said that he never doubted Bale’s quality but needs to manage his game-time.

“He doesn’t need to convince me of anything. I am totally convinced about everything, it’s not about convincing me. It’s about being ready to play the minutes we all would love him to play. It’s a process. You see how many matches he played in the last couple of years.”

Further elaborating, the Tottenham manager added that Bale wanted to play every minute of every game but that is not possible currently.

“Of course we want him to be ready to play every minute of every game. He’s doing that better and better. But he’s not playing 90 minutes, he’s not playing every game. We’re still managing his evolution. He had nothing at all to convince me.”
