Ex-Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale has spoken positively about the appointment of Jose Mourinho at his former club.
After five progressive years with Mauricio Pochettino in charge, Spurs turned to serial winner Mourinho to try help them get over the line for silverware.
He’s started well with three wins from his opening three games in charge and his team travel to Manchester United on Wednesday night.
Current Real Madrid attacker Bale is a big fan of Mourinho’s appointment at Spurs and expects him to be a real driving force for them.
Mourinho has been extremely successful during his managerial career and is now trying to achieve trophies in North London.
“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.
A selection of Spurs supporters on social media are convinced that Bale is hinting he wants a return to Spurs and are excited by his comments.
The Welsh dazzler is a potential target for Mourinho at Spurs (AS), but there has been no further reports suggesting a concrete move for him.
The 30-year-old winger has had a successful time in La Liga and won 14 pieces of silverware with them.
But he is often subject to loud jeers from Madrid supporters and it does seem like his best days at the Bernabeu are behind him.
Here are some Spurs fans responding to Bale’s comments:
