Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has heaped blame on Real Madrid for Gareth Bale’s slow start at the club.
Bale was the man-of-the-match against Burnley over the weekend, bagging twice in the 4-0 victory.
When asked by reporters why the Welshman’s performance had been such a long time coming, the Tottenham boss said: “For the past two years, he had what he had in Madrid.
“Ask them. Maybe if they answer you, you can understand better why he took a while.
“Maybe to be patient was the main reason for him to reach the level he showed in the last couple of weeks.”
