Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has expressed his impression on midfielder Gareth Bale.
“I saw the psychological scars in him. When a player suffers from constant injuries for a couple of seasons, I think it’s not the physical scars but the psychological scars that cause problems. Fear appears, instability appears,” said Mourinho to ESPN.
“But in a situation where you work well and everyone around you is giving their best, the psychological barrier has to break down. And Bale broke it down. It was him, not us. We only supported him.”
