Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale believes that Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Tottenham is a brilliant match, as his former club go in search of silverware.
Bale previously had a six-year spell in English football with Spurs and that helped catapult him to a huge move to Madrid.
The Wales international moved to the Bernabeu just after Mourinho’s exit in 2013 and has won four Champions League titles since.
But the 30-year-old has found it difficult at times in Spain and has had to deal with some harsh treatment from fans.
He’s played just 10 games for Madrid this season across all competitions, scoring two goals and supplying two assists.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Mourinho would be keen to try bring Bale back to Spurs.
The Portuguese manager has won all three games since taking charge of Spurs as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor and he’s tasked with trying to win trophies at the North London club.
Reported Spurs target Bale is convinced that his former team have appointed the right man.
“Having Mourinho there is an amazing statement from the club. I think he’s a serial winner. Tottenham want to win trophies and I don’t think there is a better partnership than Mourinho and Tottenham together to try win some trophies,” Bale told BT Sport.
Bale making a return to Spurs is something only fantasised by supporters in recent years, but it does seem more realistic than ever right now.
With Mourinho reportedly open to the idea of signing the attacker, the club should go all out to try make him a marquee addition either in January or next summer.
His comments suggest he still has a real fondness for his former club and it would be excellent to see him back in the Premier League.
He would give a major lift to the squad either if he’s not quite the player he once was, but it would be worth the gamble.
