Whelan reacts to Bale update from Mourinho

Whelan reacts to Bale update from Mourinho

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho believes Gareth Bale can regain the heights hit at Real Madrid and says he will be used predominantly on the right.

The Wales global has spent the past two weeks training after a knee injury delayed his return to the Spurs side after seven years in Spain.

Bale was singled out for criticism over his form and attitude at Real Madrid last season, but there are high hopes for his return to Spurs.

"Probably he plays Sunday and, if he doesn't, he will on Thursday", Mourinho added.

West Ham made a terrible start to Sunday's clash with Tottenham and fans were quick to suggest that David Moyes' return to the dugout was the reason for it.

"So if he's happy with us then he goes home and he can share that happiness with family".

"In certain games, the other massive bonus for me and from a manager's point of view for Jose, when you look along the bench you want game-changers and with Gareth coming in now, you've got Lucas Moura on the bench, possibly you might have Kane on the bench to rest him at times, you can have Son on the bench".

Above Gareth Bale is not a certain starter against West Ham today. Left Jose Mourinho with Harry Kane who will combine with Son Heung-min and Bale to form a deadly front trio

"What I will tell you is that he's working very well". All the decisions will be thinking first about the team but never forgetting what is the best for him.

"The last week, especially Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, the planning of the sessions had a big focus on him and he is in pretty good condition".

"Because the most important thing is the team, and he will play where the team needs him to play, but he was very clear by saying his favourite position is on the right". The Brazilian was a new arrival along with Bale, Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Hart. "But at the same time they are anxious about themselves, 'am I going to play or not going to play?' This is the kind of feeling you have in the top teams and we are having that now".

"In such a hard period, the club made an incredible effort".

"Now it is for me, my staff, for the players to answer in a positive way and have a good season".

"Mr. Levy showed once more than when he wants, when he is really involved, he is a genius in the way he makes deals happen and I can only publicly thank them for what they gave to the team".
