José Mourinho has been speaking on the subject of Dele Alli and Gareth Bale after Tottenham’s loss to Manchester City at the Etihad.
Mourinho’s men fell short against City, which to be fair have been the fit side in the Premier League since the turn of the year, and were subsequently beaten 3-0.
The Spurs coach spoke after the game about the fatigue of his players, but without acknowledging that there are talented players within his ranks that he does not usually use.
To name a couple: Dele Alli and Gareth Bale.
Both players have found difficult Premier League opportunities for this season, and speaking after the game, Mourinho offered some insight into why that may be.
Speaking to the press, Mourinho suggested that he does not doubt the quality of any of the players, but rather their physical and mental disposition to play in games as substantial as today’s clash with a side of the caliber of City.
Dele Alli and Gareth Bale have the ability, but are they “physically and mentally ready”?
