Bale: Mourinho was a big reason behind Tottenham return


Bale

Gareth Bale says the prospect of working with Jose Mourinho was one of the main reasons he agreed to return to Tottenham.

Mourinho said this week that he tried to sign the 31-year-old when he was in charge of the Spanish giants, who ended up bringing him to the Santiago Bernabeu after the Portuguese coach's departure earlier that year.

Bale is excited to finally get to work with the ex-Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter boss, and is confident Spurs will win trophies with him in charge.

"He’s spoken to me about a few positions that he would like me to play and obviously I’m happy with that," Bale told BT Sport.

"He was a big reason for me coming back here. He’s a household name and a winner.

"He’s the perfect fit for Tottenham. We need to win trophies and he knows how to do that better than anyone.

"I know every Tottenham fan is desperate for a trophy and we’ll be trying as hard as possible in every competition to do that."

Bale cemented his place as a Tottenham legend before he left for Madrid in 2013, where he wontwoLa Ligatitles andfourChampions Leaguecrowns.

Although his style has changed a lot over the years, he believes he can still play a key role as Spurs look to improve on last season's sixth-place finish.

"As a player I’m not going to be doing the same 90-yard runs down the wing every second. I understand my game more, it’s evolved since then," he said.

"I’m more grown up and mature. I might not act it sometimes when I’m joking around in training but I had to grow up living abroad.

"But I know I still have a lot to offer and I still have my pace. I’m excited to show what I can still do.

"We want to win things so I’m going to make sure I help the team as much as I can to achieve that."

He added:"I need to get fully fit. I haven’t trained since the Wales camp so I need to get on the training pitch.

"Hopefully I can hit the ground running in my first game, whenever that may be.

"Harry's done incredibly well since he burst onto the scene and scored a lot of goals.

"To play with him and Son is an exciting prospect for all of us. We all want to chip in to help each other but our main goal will be to do as much as we can for the team.

"If we're all pushing in the same direction it could be a very exciting season.
