Tottenham Hotspur: Jose Mourinho provides update on Gareth Bale - Premier League

Speaking after Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-0 Premier League victory over Burnley, Jose Mourinho provided an update on the fitness of Spurs’ man of the match in the fixture, Gareth Bale.

Bale was in sensational form for Tottenham, bagging two goals and providing one assist, as well as making one key pass, completing two dribbles and winning five duels, all of which culminated in a highly impressive SofaScore match rating of 8.9 – ranking him as the club’s best performer in the match.

However, speaking after the game, when Mourinho was questioned as to whether the 31-year-old would now be starting in both of Spurs’ upcoming fixtures against Fulham and Dinamo Zagreb, the 58-year-old cast some doubt on the £18m-rated forward’s availability.

The manager said: “Day after day, day after day, and as I was saying, he is experienced and his knowledge of his body and his feelings are going to be fundamental.

“A player that gives me this kind of performance of course I want to play him on Thursday and on Sunday, and I want to play him next week against Dinamo Zagreb but I don’t think I can. I don’t think I can.”

Transfer Tavern Take

Indeed, Bale’s performances in recent fixtures – the Welshman has scored four goals and provided three assists over his last four appearances in all competitions – could be an indication that the Real Madrid loanee is beginning to get back to his best at Spurs.

However, considering just how blighted the 31-year-old has been by injury so far this season, perhaps Mourinho’s cautious approach to the forward’s future game-time is a way of ensuring that Bale remains as fit as possible over his remaining time in north London.
