Mourinho feels Gareth Bale is “better than ever” after Tottenham beat Burnley
Tottenham returned to winning ways in the Premier League and did so in style, thrashing Burnley 4-0 at home. It was a game filled with some brilliant displays as the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura all looked good.
But it was one man who stole the show as Gareth Bale led the way with a double on the afternoon. Having scored the opener just in the second minute, the 31-year-old added his second of the game in the second half with an emphatic effort that left Nick Pope with little chance.
Having scored in both the games against Wolfsberger and assisted a goal in the defeat to West Ham, Bale continued his strong run on Sunday. And his manager, Mourinho was full of praise for the veteran attacker.
“Sometimes people write things, and sometimes, some of you like to imagine stories, you need to write stories and sometimes you like to say things that are not really true but there is not one single manager in the world that doesn’t play Gareth Bale if Gareth Bale is in very good condition. There is not one, but now he is better than ever.
“It’s not just about the two goals he scored, it’s fundamentally about his physical performance. Now he’s not flat. Now he has ups and downs in the speed he brings to his actions. I’m just pleased for the team because he helped the team to win and that’s the most important thing. I’m happy for him.”
