Mourinho fears Bale could suffer setback working with Arsenal coach


Gareth Bale Wales 2020

Jose Mourinho is concerned Gareth Bale's best interests may not be looked after while he is on international duty with an Arsenal coach on the Wales coaching staff.

Mourinho has eased Bale back into action following his loan move from Real Madrid to Tottenham as the forward builds his fitness up after spending so long on the sidelines.

Robert Page has stepped in to take charge of Wales after the arrest of Ryan Giggs, who denies any wrongdoing, following an allegation of assault.

Page will be assisted by Arsenal coachAlbertStuivenberg, which Spurs boss Mourinho is not comfortable about.

Asked about Bale's fitness, Mourinho said: "I think he's getting better and better. I felt that he could play 90 minutes in a Europa League win over Ludogorets on Thursday but it's not about can or cannot, it's about managing the situation and keeping him safe.

"He's player that needs to be safe, he's a player that had enough problems in the past. He is working so much and we all are working so much and so carefully with him that we don't want to destroy the work that everybody has been doing for the past couple of months.

"Of course Wales have two matches where they play in the Nations League and I expect him to play, but if they care as much about him as they say they do, they have to manage the recovery periods, manage how many days between one match and another, manage the minutes he plays and they should not let him get into fatigue levels.

"I don't think, from what I'm reading, it will not be Giggs responsible for these matches and I'm sorry about that because in the previous fixtures, he called me, we spoke about Ben Davies – not Gareth, because Gareth was not there – and we shared opinions on the situation which is probably not going to happen this time.
