Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have been discussing Jose Mourinho’s latest comments about Gareth Bale that recently emerged on social media.
Mourinho was recently talking about Bale’s situation at Spurs and the Portuguese was asked about whether it is time for the Welshman to now step up because of Harry Kane’s ankle injury. Mourinho said that Bale managed to make a ‘big impact’ in the FA Cup against Wycombe and this is a crucial moment for the Real Madrid loanee because of Kane’s injury issue.
Should Mourinho use Bale as a striker?
These comments from Mourinho were relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Express. Many Tottenham fans made their views clear about them.
What did Spurs fans make of these comments from Mourinho?
“He needs to evolve his gameplay. Can’t he can’t as a number 10 linking up players? What is the use of him playing in the wing but can’t beat a man because of his lost of pace?“
“He can’t step up if Mourinho never lets him step on the pitch.“
“That doesn’t explain why Carlos Vinicius didn’t play yesterday.”
In his loan stint at Spurs, Bale has made 14 appearances in all competitions. In the Premier League, he has made five appearances so far, scoring once in the competition. He had played nine minutes against Liverpool recently, playing the full 90 minutes against Wycombe (as per Transfermarkt).
He had scored for Spurs in their Premier League win over Brighton earlier this season. Some other Tottenham fans also talked about Mourinho’s comments on Bale.
“Bale szn approaching! Let’s go.”
“The guy is finished, sent him back to Madrid.”
