Gareth Bale aims dig at Jose Mourinho after Tottenham down Southampton

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has taken a thinly-veiled dig at ex-manager Jose Mourinho following the victory against Southampton.

Mourinho was relieved of his managerial duties this past Monday with former midfielder Ryan Mason taking over the reins of the first-team till the end of the season. In his first game in charge, the 29-year-old recalled Gareth Bale to the starting XI, after the Welshman had seemingly fallen out of favour under Jose in recent games.

Things did not begin well for Tottenham as Southampton took the lead in the first period through Danny Ings. However, Spurs turned the tables in the second half with Bale equalising at the hour mark before Son Heung-min rounded off the win from the penalty spot late on. Between that, Sonny also had a goal chalked off for a contentious offside call.

Tottenham showed greater intent and drive while attacking, especially in the second half. And Bale, speaking after the game, pointed towards that, aiming a dig at Mourinho’s defensive-minded approach, in the process. (h/t Express)

“Maybe to just be on the front foot a bit more. We want to attack. We’re a big team, we have great players. We need to try and attack more, stay higher up the pitch and I think we did that today.”

The win sees Tottenham move to sixth place in the Premier League standings. We are now two points below Chelsea in fourth. While it was certainly a good start to Mason’s tenure, his big test will come up at the weekend when we face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final this weekend.
