|▲ Gareth Bale and motif Mourinho|
[스포티비뉴스=이민재 기자] It is said that more and more players are raising questions about not using Gareth Bale (Tottenham).
British media’Metro’ reported on the 15th (hereinafter Korean time), “Some of Tottenham’s veteran players expressed amazement at the attitude of coach Mourinho, who is reluctant to use the veil this season.”
Ahead of this season, Bale came to Tottenham on a one-year loan from Real Madrid. Bale, who was winning in Real Madrid, was unable to play many games due to frequent injuries and conflicts with manager Zinedine Zidane. Eventually, he returned to his home team.
It was expected to show off hot attacks with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane. However, Bale has only scored 3 goals in 12 games this season, and is playing only 4 games in the Premier League.
The media said, “Mourinho is excluding Bale from the confrontation with strong teams such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. According to ESPN reports, coach Mourinho was embarrassed to see Bale’s match against Leicester City last month.”
He added, “Bale was removed once more. When it was necessary to win the last Fulham game, coach Mourinho chose Eric Lamela and Carlos Vinicius.”
At the beginning of the season, there were many evaluations that Bale would sign a lease for another year. However, as their position has recently declined, there is a possibility that they will not be together next year. “The Times” said, “The influence Bale showed during the first half is lacking. It is unlikely that Tottenham will bring Bale on loan next season.”
Head coach Mourinho said at a press conference held on the 17th before the match against Sheffield United, “When Bale first arrived, he suffered from injuries for a month. In the Europa League group stage, he played a lot because of the pressure from the Premier League,” he said. “We haven’t discussed the second season since. Bale is on loan until this season. We haven’t talked about the second season. We have to agree with Bale, Real Madrid and Tottenham.”
