It is now beyond question that Gareth Bale’s experiment has failed at Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite all the talk about bringing the prodigal back home, the Welshman has done nothing to inspire since his return.
Injuries have played a part, just as they did at Real Madrid, and that must be part of the reason why the Whites were so eager to unload it for a season in North London.
His relationship with José Mourinho has also seemed cold at best, and after Bale’s latest Instagram post, it could be completely broken.
The Portuguese does not take fools with gusto as he has shown many times in the past, and the winger’s recent actions have not gone well.
“Well, I think it’s better for me to say it. So we played West Bromwich on Sunday and he didn’t play, ”said the Daily mirror I quote Mourinho after the elimination of Spurs in the FA Cup against Everton, a game in which Bale did not participate.
“On Monday I was a bit surprised that he wanted to have a scan because he was not comfortable with any muscle area.
“So he didn’t train on Monday and then on Tuesday he trained with the team but they informed me that their wish would be to work with sports science for a couple of days to strengthen that area where they don’t feel comfortable.
“That is why he is not here.”
While the first team squad was away for that match, Bale decided to post a ‘Good session today’ message on his Instagram channel.
The inference seems clear enough, and Mourinho is said to be furious at what he perceives to be Bale blaming the coach for his absence.
This is not going to end well.
