Video: Jose says Gareth Bale wants to play against non-league side

Posted by

Jose has been speaking about Gareth Bale and his upcoming FA Cup fixture against non-league side Marine in a press conference today. Spurs face off against Marine on Sunday in the 5pm kick off and Jose spoke about giving the non-league side ‘respect’ and what better way to respect the side than to play a world class player like Gareth Bale.

Bale has not been as much of a key to Tottenham’s success as he would have expected with the Welshman only featuring 11 times in all competitions and 4 of those coming in the Premier League according to Transfermarkt. The Champions League winner has managed to find the back of the net 3 times in those 11 appearances and maybe he sees this away trip as a chance to pad his stats.

Do you think Jose will name Gareth in his starting XI away to Marine? Mourinho seems cagey about the whole situation and wasn’t quick to confirm Bale as a certain starter.
