Jose Mourinho reveals end of season plan for Real Madrid loanee Gareth Bale

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he is making special preparations for Real Madrid loan star Gareth Bale in the final weeks of the season.

Bale returned to the Premier League giants on a season long loan deal from Zinedine Zidane‘s side at the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

However, the early months of his return were dogged by minor injuries and poor form, with speculation intensifying that he could return to Madrid early.

But despite their relationship appearing strained at the start of 2021, Mourinho has quashed rumours of a rift, confirming he has big plans for the Welsh international in the end of season run in.

We have believed in him and trusted his ability to judge and analyse his body,” he told an interview with Diario AS.

“We do not want him to accumulate high levels of fatigue. Thus, between minutes 55-60, we are already in contact and we try to understand each other.

“The plan is to get him off the field when he feel the first effects of muscle fatigue.  In this case, we must be careful because we need him. it is so simple as that. He is giving us a lot.

“Gareth gives us a bonus. He could not start the season and now he plays like that for a couple of months. His quality is remarkable, he is a fantastic player.”

Bale has slowly edged his way into Mourinho’s starting XI in recent weeks, as part of an in form attacking trio alongside Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min.

The 31-year old looks to be getting back to his best personal form under Mourinho, with six goals in his last six appearances in all competitions for Spurs.

    It’s funny how they add Son in the picture, for pure marketing purposes towards the asian market.

    Firstly I am a massive Spurs Fan have been since the early 60s, so have seen a lot of players & Managers come & go over the years, I was bemused when I heard on the radio that Pochettino had been sacked as we seemed a stable unit playing proper football, ok in the Champions
    League Final we had a bad start ( done up like a kipper by a bed Ref) and didn’t have any fight left in us but that’s how it goes, we now have Jose Mourinho who has seemed very “flinty” with certain players one game he’s saying “so & so” is the ideal player then next week he has a miss kick and then he’s the worst player in the league and wants rid of them, so he’s took some understanding, whether Jose is going to be a good manager in the long term who knows, even now Gareth Bale is bang on form and he’s still not saying if he wants him to stay! And sign a proper contract which in many supporters eyes would be ideal, but it’s all a little guessing game with Jose he’s got to be pulling the strings or he’s having a meltdown because he wants his own way! So here we are not knowing if Gareth is staying or come to that will Jose stay?, Who knows anything?.
