Spurs Fans Think Jose Mourinho's Latest Instagram Comment Is A Clear Dig At Gareth Bale


Spurs Fans Think Jose Mourinho's Latest Instagram Comment Is A Clear Dig At Gareth Bale

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has commented on the club's latest Instagram post - with many believing it to be a dig at Gareth Bale.


It was announced on Tuesday evening that Ben Davies had to withdraw from the Wales squad after suffering an injury.

The 27-year-old came on for Sergio Reguilon despite not being fully fit himself and played the final 33 minutes of Sunday's 2-0 win over Aston Villa.


Mourinho's comment read: "When a player plays injured to help his team to recover from two bad defeats, this can hapen [sic]. A man, a team player."

It came just hours after Bale's comments about returning to parent club Real Madrid.


Bale returned to Spurs last summer on a season-long loan and fans were hoping he'd make the move permanent.

But the winger admitted in a press conference earlier this week that going back to Madrid was 'the plan.'




Bale's comments came ahead of Wales' World Cup qualifiers this week.

"There's no distraction for me," he told BBC Sport when asked about his club future.

"I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost.

"Going into the Euros I wanted to be match-fit. The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid.
