Why did it take so long to recover Bale? Ask Real. Mourinho’s straightforwardness.
“What took me so long to get my veil back? Ask Real Madrid!”
Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, ahead of the Fulham match, replied to a question about Gareth Bale on the 4th (Korea time) 안전공원
Bale, who wore Tottenham’s uniform on loan at Real Madrid in September, had a hard time. His performance rarely improved, and Mourinho slowly increased his playing time in the Europa League and waited for his form to return. Bale has been remarkably revived in recent years. Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are finally on their feet. In the last four games, Bale scored four goals and three assists with impressive performances. He played an impressive role in the Europa League match against Wolfsburg in the round of 32 and declared his resurrection with his own mouth, saying, “My form is back,” after leading the 4-0 victory with two goals and one assist in the 70th minute against Burnley.
“For the past two years, he has been in Madrid,” Mourinho told reporters ahead of the Fulham expedition. “Ask them why it took so long for the form to return.
“If they answer the reason, they will understand better why it took so long,” he added. “The biggest reason why he has been able to reach a good level of play in recent weeks is patience,” he said, referring to the waiting time.
Asked if Bale would play against Fulham, he said, “I think so. I don’t know whether it’s a starter or a bench. “We have to decide on that,” he said. “Bale is an experienced player, so his own opinion is very important. “I’m in a very good condition after the match against Burnley, and I’m going to play as I’ve had a good recovery session.” “Once again, whether it’s a bench or a starter, he’ll be on the field,” he said.
