Mourinho criticizes Bale’s post

Tottenham Hotspurs head coach Jose Mourinho has criticized Gareth Bale’s post over his fitness.

Gareth Bale had initially posted that he had a good training session. But Mourinho says it created a confusion as this post made people think that he was fully fit and was training with the first team. Also Bale had told Mourinho that he wasn’t feeling well.

After the 5-4 loss against Everton, Mourinho then felt forced to explain the situation, providing information that he had not intended to make public. He said Bale asked for a scan on an unspecified issue on Monday. And still felt uncomfortable after training on Tuesday, even though the scan did not indicate an injury.

“I have to admit that his post created something that needed to be addressed because there was a contradiction between the post and the reality,” Mourinho said.

“Since the beginning of the season, in relation to everything, I tried to be very, very private and tried to keep everything indoors but I’ve felt that I needed to address the situation. “Probably the post was not even his responsibility, I don’t know but the post was: ‘Training session great,’ so I’m ready and it was totally wrong.

When I was questioned, I had to say the reality of the things which I [will now] repeat for the last time and I hope there are no more questions about it because the situation was exactly the way I told [it].
