“The Tottenham Way”: Bale aims another dig at Jose Mourinho after win vs Sheffield United

Gareth Bale aims another dig at Jose Mourinho after Tottenham thrash Sheffield United

According to the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur superstar Gareth Bale has aimed another thinly-veiled dig at Jose Mourinho following their 4-0 triumph over Sheffield United on Sunday.

Mourinho was let go of Tottenham last month following a run of poor performances and results. Ryan Mason has been appointed interim manager for the rest of the season and has led the team to two wins in two league games, although Spurs did lose to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final in between.

Bale, who had taken a sly dig at Jose for the way he set the team up after Tottenham beat Southampton, has once again aimed a shot at the Portuguese.

Having helped Tottenham thrash Sheffield United 4-0 with a hat-trick, the Welsh wing-wizard appeared to have a go at his ex-manager, insisting that the team had finally started to play the ‘Tottenham way’ again.

“(It’s) the fact that we’re more on the front foot, we’re closer to the goal and you’re able to score more. We’re playing football the Tottenham way.”

Under Mourinho, this had been a problem for Tottenham. The team found it hard to break open teams that sit deep and defend but chances have been flowing in the two league games that Mason has overseen – something that has not been lost on Bale.

The Welshman, who had been pretty much out of favour during Mourinho’s final days, also insisted that it was good to be back out on the field and playing well.

“I feel good, as I’ve said before I just needed to play games, to get a run of games and I’m doing that now. I’m happy and when I’m happy I normally play well.”

The win sees Tottenham move into the fifth place, although we are still five points shy of Chelsea in fourth. With four games left, there is still hope for us to achieve a top four finish given as the Blues play Manchester City, Arsenal, Leicester and Aston Villa in their remaining games.
