Gareth Bale returned to Tottenham and José Mourinho claims he can rediscover his best form.
Bale may make his second debut against West Ham on Sunday. He was the most eye-catching arrival for Spurs. Mourinho wants the 31-year-old to repeat the results that brought him to Real Madrid in 2013 for a then £85 million world record and suggested that Bale would be used mainly on the right according to .
“When he reaches his continuity and when he reaches his normal intensity and dynamic, I think he can be the player that people saw, being decisive when he went to Real Madrid in a very similar position,” Tottenham’s manager said.
“It’s great to listen from Sergio Reguilón, who shared the dressing room with him in Madrid, that Gareth looks a different guy,” Mourinho said.
“So if he’s happy with us then he goes home and he can share that happiness with family; it’s the best thing that can happen to him. But he needs his football and he needs to feel a top player again and that’s why I’m saying all the decisions we make with him will be thinking first about the team but never forgetting what is best for him.”
