‘Ask Zizou’ – Mourinho would prefer there were no questions about Gareth Bale’s future
Jose Mourinho is quite tired of answering questions about Gareth Bale.
the The Welsh star is back in great shape and featuring Tottenham in their first year on loan from Real Madrid, which naturally led to other questions.
For a while, it was a lot of “Why isn’t Gareth playing?” and almost instantly it was “So is he coming back?” “
[ PREVIEW: Fulham v Tottenham ]
Now, as Spurs prepare to visit their London rivals Fulham on Thursday (start time 1 p.m. ET online via Peacock Premium), Mourinho would rather you ask him anything else.
“Gareth again! Maybe he won’t play tomorrow and every question is about Gareth. Come on. Just because he scored two goals. Come on, ” Mourinho said, via Football.London. “Regarding that, you should contact your colleagues in Madrid and they should ask Zidane because he is a Real Madrid player and he is not a Tottenham player, so Real Madrid have everything in their hands.”
“They have a player with a one-year contract and have the power in their hands. I just have one player on loan and I’m trying to get the most out of the Tottenham Hotspur player, with all due respect to Real Madrid. It’s the same with Carlos Vinicius. We try to take care of the player we loaned for us but also the respect we have for the club that lends the player.
“If you want to ask questions about Gareth’s future, ask your colleagues in Madrid to ask Zizou.”
What is that feeling inside?
Sympathy for José Mourinho?
As we said above, the combustible trophy collector had to answer questions about Bale not playing when the Welsh player was out of form and now his hot streak immediately sparked questions as to whether he would stay forever.
Plus, I can’t wait to hear the questions if Bale doesn’t start or scores a hat trick tomorrow against Fulham. The silly season comes early.
