Jamie O’Hara slams on-loan Tottenham star Gareth Bale
The 31-year-old returned to Tottenham last summer after seven years away from the club, signing on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid.
However, Bale endured a rough start to life back in London as he spent close to three months out on the sidelines. There have been some impressive performances in the recent past but he angered the Tottenham supporters with his recent comments when he admitted that he only returned to the club to stay fit ahead of the Euros.
Now, O’Hara has taken a disliking to those comments and slammed Bale, insisting that Mourinho and the fans are all tired of his saga.
“He came in, they had this big thing where everyone was standing outside the ground, it was like the Messiah coming back. He wasn’t fit for three months, gets fit, has a few decent games, then disappears in the two biggest games of the season. The London derby and Zagreb, two shocking performances.
“Then he comes out and says he just wanted to be fit for the Euros, that’s why he came to Spurs and he wants to go back to Madrid. Everyone’s tired of it, Mourinho’s tired of it, you can see. He didn’t play him against Aston Villa, he brings him on for five minutes against Newcastle, that whole situation just needs to end.”

Bale’s return to Tottenham had that tinge of romanticism to it. However, clearly, things have failed to work out as envisaged. Despite showing glimpses of his quality, the Welshman has underwhelmed largely and a severing of ties at the end of the season would be the best way forward.
