Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was impressed with two-goal Gareth Bale after their 4-1 thumping of Crystal Palace.
Mourinho admits helping rebuild the confidence of the on-loan attacker after the game.
He said, “I didn’t challenge him, nobody challenged him. We just supported him.
“I found psychological scars. When you have a couple of seasons with lots of injuries I think it is not about the muscular scars but the psychological scars – that brings fears and instability.
“There is a moment when you are working very well and everyone around you is giving everything we can give, there is a moment where that psychological barrier has to be broken. And he broke it. It was him, not us. We just supported him. He broke it and is playing very well.
“I’m very happy, he is a fantastic player and I’m so happy to work with a player like him.”
